Arbitration, mediation and conciliation are the three ADR methods regulated in Spain.
Mediation is popular and commonly implemented in the family law field, although it is also implemented in other fields such as civil law, criminal law or labour law.
Arbitration is an ADR method which is viewed as a method to resolve international commercial disputes. One of its advantages is the fact that it is tailored to accommodate the specific controversy.
Conciliation is another ADR method regulated in Spain and commonly implemented in the labour law field, although it is less popular in the other fields.
