In December of 2012, the American Arbitration Association created an important new tool for those interested in creating their own arbitration clause without cost:  the Alternative Dispute Resolution ClauseBuilder Tool, found at (Just copy and paste in your address window)  For now, the ClauseBuilder is limited to commercial arbitration arbitration and mediation, although the website invites interested persons to contact the AAA for help in preparing, for example, employment ADR clauses and promises the tool will be available for such clauses soon.

As a member of the Commercial and Employment AAA panels, the author applauds the efforts of that organization to provide useful services to potential clients.  If you’re interested in arbitration (pre- or post-dispute) but don’t already have applicable contract language, check this free clause-builder out.
