result in violence, without constraints or safeguards to protect individual
rights.

May result in rights not being protected or upheld, reluctance to concede
when a legitimate claim exists.

FOR: Parties own outcome, usually mutually agreed upon, reduces potential
costs and delays. AGAINST: Parties bargaining or negotiating power may be
unequal, does not always result in mutually beneficial outcome.

FOR: Cheaper, more accessible to parties, parties more likely to accept
outcome. AGAINST: Decisions are not binding, cannot resolve issues of law.

representation not always used can result in unfair negotiation process.

dispute. AGAINST: Costs can be high, especially if legal representation is
used, decision is imposed on parties.

questions of law, can set precedent. AGAINST: Cost and delays associated
with using traditional courts, decision is imposed on parties.
