An arbitration clause allows the parties to have their disputes heard by an Arbitrator (trier of fact, similar to a Judge), instead of going to court). When parties disagree, they can either go to court (the average case takes about 2 years to be heard) or to have their case tried before an arbitrator (ususally a much quicker and sometimes less expensive option).
