Mr. Taylor is correct.
Since you are asking under the arbitration category, it could also be, and often is, a provision in a contract that explains the right/obligation to submit any dispute to arbitration.
On AVVO it's a category where you can list your question if it doesn't seem to fit in any other specific category, like Landlord/Tenant, Car Accident, etc.
