Visit American Arbitration Association. Explain what this organization does. Examine how the AAA could be used either in your current career, or in a career that you seek to pursue. What are the drawbacks to mediation and arbitration? Use two sources other than the text to support your claims.

You must use at least two scholarly resources (at least one of which can be found in the Ashford Online Library) other than the textbook to support your claims and subclaims. Cite your resources in text and on the reference page. For information regarding APA samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center, within the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar, in your online course.
