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.

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.
