Arbitration Act (2000)


The 2000 Revised Uniform Arbitration Act represents a modified version of its predecessor, the 1955 Uniform Arbitration Act (amended in 1956), which was widely adopted in the states. The 2000 revisions reflect developments in arbitration law, which became an increasingly utilized method of alternative dispute resolution since the time of the original Uniform Arbitration Act.
