We regularly get requests to appoint arbitrators in our capacity as an Arbital Appointment Referee. We are currently looking to increase the number of arbitrators on the Law Society panel.

If you work in the area of arbitration and would like to join the panel please contact us at  profprac@lawscot.org.uk or by calling 0131 226 8896.

It's free to join - all we currently require is a demonstration of your work in this area.

 The most familiar forms of ADR are:

  • Arbitration
  • Adjudication
  • Mediation
  • Expert Determination

 Get in touch by emailing us at profprac@lawscot.org.uk or calling 0131 226 8896.

The inclusion of Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) clauses in a contract is increasingly common. Model clauses can be found on the Scottish Arbitration Centre website.
