Private Judging


Private judging is an approach between arbitration and litigation with the process where parties in dispute agree to choose a neutral person to act as a private judge. The private judge who may be a former judge with expertise in the area of the dispute, will hear the case and make a decision similar to a judge.

Private Judging is gaining popularity, especially in commercial situations, because disputes may be settled much quicker than under the traditional court system.
