Arbitro or Arbitror – it means to witness, to judge, to arbitrate (a legal dispute). Nowadays it is related to the term “arbitration”. In most jurisdictions this is an alternative dispute resolution method (process) by which an independent, neutral third person ("arbitrator") or more than one, is appointed to hear and consider the different sides of the dispute and renders a final and binding decision called “adjudication”.
