Mediation
Approach:


 
Generally, that which seems appropriate for the parties and the dispute. Typically 65% directive and 35% facilitative.
Arbitration
Approach:


 
Much like a Bench Trial with relaxed rules of evidence and an informal and comfortable atmosphere.
Neutral
Approach:


 
Each side provides in advance a statement of their case. At he hearing, this may be expanded. Paper evidence is received, although no examination or cross. The parties then decide whether to talk settlement, and if so whether with of without knowledge of my evaluation.
