It is possible and somewhat likely that a pre-arbitration settlement will be reached by the parties once they see the bottom line offer the other side is presenting. If the arbitrator must make a decision, at least both of the settlement choices were chosen by the parties themselves. Final-offer arbitration can minimize or eliminate the "chilling effect" which is the practice of disputing parties putting forth less than best offers during negotiations in hopes that the arbitrator will make a decision that will split the differences between the offers. The beauty of final-offer arbitration is the motivation provided to parties to determine for themselves their last and best offers carefully. The truly last, best offer of the other side can be considered during the grace period to negotiate a settlement between the final two
BINDING THIRD PARTIES TO ARBITRATION: IS THE CORNERSTONE OF ARBITRATION “Consent” – ACTUALLY CORNERED? Like consummated romance, arbitration rests on consent. CHAPTER I: INTRODUCTION Ordinarily, “a party cannot be required to submit to arbitration any dispute which he has not agreed so to submit.” Consent has long been the foundation of arbitration , giving the process legitimacy and informing decisions about its nature and structure. In corollary, the powers which vest in the arbitrators find its root in the agreement to arbitrate where the parties agree to submit their grievances to arbitration. Hence, plausibly there are two sine qua non conditions for enforcing an arbitration agreement firstly, there should be in-fact an arbitration agreement and secondly, the dispute must fall within the scope of arbitration agreement.
Both forms of ADR have several common characteristics. However, one must consider that a neutral side in both procedures fulfils distinct from one another duties. Mediators do not have the objective to make decision, whereas arbitrators determine an outcome of the case. Upon the termination of the procedure, an arbiter renders a binding award that cannot be later avoided by disputants. During mediation, parties are not contingent upon the third side and enjoy freedom of actions needed for dispute resolution.

In negotiations where there is sole supplier for example, the negotiator will have less bargaining power. Good negotiators also try to improve their alternatives. For instant if A negotiations with B extend over a period of time without having any conclusion yet, A could keep an look out for other better alternatives. I also believe that good negotiators count on their own luck at times.
Getting the person away from the problem is an important first step because if the negotiation is not focusing on the problem then attacks on a person can happen, which could ruin the relationship. The interests are what are crucial because that is what is at the core of someone’s position. The position is the easy part to focus on but when looking at the interests of both groups there is a higher chance of mutual satisfaction. A third way to help a common gain is to create interests that both... ... middle of paper ... ...o gain an advantage, the best defense is to be prepared enough to notice deception or false statements.

party must, in most cases give up something in exchange for getting something from the other side.” Negotiation process can lead to a speedy and informal resolution of disputes. It also helps protect the confidentiality and avoid publicity of the parties involved. Parties may improve communication between them that will enhance or preserve relationship between parties and hence leads to a speedy resolution of disputes. Parties have high degree control of the negotiation process. If an agreement is reached, parties can craft out their own agreements.
Therefore power inversely affect the negotiator’s perspective taking but it also immunizes him/her from disputants angry or threatening tactics. With taking into account perspective taking and power a negotiator will have advantage when it comes to bargaining.
The Act states in Section One that the object of Arbitration is “to obtain the fair resolution of disputes by an impartial tribunal without necessary delay or expense” (Slapper and Kelly, 2003) Arbitration can only transpire if both parties involved agree to it, it is the only form of ADR t... ... middle of paper ... ...ional decision without the situation getting out of hand. Each party will in turn be able to state what they feel is the nature of the dispute before negotiating a suitable outcome. Negotiation is slightly different to Conciliation and Mediation as the person negotiating acts on ‘your’ behalf and represents and looks after ‘your’ interests, a successful negotiator will be able to reach a conclusion where they are able to achieve most of their parties wishes but without causing the other party to feel they have lost and therefore detach themselves from the rest of the negotiation process and then choose to pursue a litigation option. Conciliation can be seen as a form of Mediation in fact some people say that the only difference between them is that Conciliators have more power than Mediators as they can “suggest grounds for compromise and the possible basis for a conclusive agreement” (Slapper and Kelly, 2001). Conciliation like Arbitration is part of ACAS and like Mediation tries to allow parties to decide an outcome between them that suits them both, however it does not always guarantee that a dispute will be settled and will not proceed to litigation anyway.
In continuation, I will look at two theories in relation to Hart’s view on ‘hard cases’, that is, Dworkin’s Interpretism and Pragmatism.

In the case Cameron J looked at the general definition of neutrality which entails not taking a side in a conflict, i.e. unbiased. Neutrality implies not judging the validity of an opinion.
Conciliation is a procedure refers to settle a dispute or conflict it to an organised parts whose aims is to illustrate the certainties and recommend solutions for a settlement to the parties concerned. The proposition of conciliation has no binding power on the parties who are free to accept or reject the recommendations of conciliators. Conciliators meet with the parties either together or independently. Conciliation is depicted by some as a mix of enquiry and Mediation. The conciliator explores the facts and history of the conflict and recommends the terms of the settlement.
