The primary difference between Arbitration and Adjudication is the person or entity that makes the decision in a legal dispute.
In arbitration, the disputing parties agree on an impartial third party- an individual or a group- to hear both sides and resolve the issue.
In adjudication, the decosion is taken by judge, magistrate, or other legally-appointed official.

The adjudicative process is governed by formal rules of evidence and procedure. In adjudication, the decision is the responsibility of a judge, magistrate, or other legally-appointed official. Whereas Arbitration is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), is a technique for the resolution of disputes outside the courts. In arbitration, the disputing parties agree on an impartial third party instead of going to the court.
