While both mediation and arbitration are alternative dispute resolution methods, mediation focuses on facilitating negotiation and voluntary agreement, while arbitration involves a neutral third party making a binding decision. The choice between the two methods depends on the nature of the dispute, the preferences of the parties involved, and the desired outcome.
Mediation and arbitration are two alternative dispute resolution methods that aim to resolve conflicts without going to court. While they share some similarities, they have distinct differences in their processes and outcomes. Here’s an explanation of the key differences between mediation and arbitration:
In mediation, the mediator has the goal of helping the parties reach a fair resolution. To accomplish this goal, the mediator tries to help the parties understand each other’s perspectives and viewpoints. The mediator discusses the strengths and weaknesses of various positions to work toward reaching an agreement. A mediator facilitates the bargaining process.

Arbitration is like the court process as parties still provide testimony and give evidence similar to a trial but it is usually less formal.
Most civil or contract disputes can be resolved through arbitration rather than through the courts.
Arbitration differs from litigation in the following ways: Arbitration cannot be instigated by only one party to the dispute. Both parties need to agree to the process. The parties to the dispute choose their arbiter.
If your mediation is court-ordered or conducted by a certified mediator, there are laws and rules which require confidentiality. (See the Mediation Confidentiality and Privilege Act, sections 44.401 – 44.406, Florida Statutes).
Rule 10.300 Mediator’s Responsibility to the Parties
The purpose of mediation is to provide a forum for consensual dispute resolution by the parties. It is not an adjudicatory procedure. Accordingly, a mediator’s responsibility to the parties includes honoring their right of self-determination; acting with impartiality; and avoiding coercion, improper influence, and conflicts of interest. A mediator is also responsible for maintaining an appropriate demeanor, preserving confidentiality, and promoting the awareness by the parties of the interests of non-participating persons. A mediator’s business practices should reflect fairness, integrity and impartiality.
2000 Revision. Rules 10.300 – 10.380 include a collection of specific ethical concerns involving a mediator’s responsibility to the parties to a dispute. Incorporated in this new section are the concepts formerly found in Rule 10.060 (Self Determination); Rule 10.070 (Impartiality/Conflict of Interest); Rule 10.080 (Confidentiality); Rule 10.090 (Professional Advice); and Rule 10.100 (Fees and Expenses). In addition, the Committee grouped under this heading ethical concerns dealing with the mediator’s demeanor and courtesy, contractual relationships, and responsibility to non-participating persons.
