Mediation and arbitration are applicable in different scenarios and have a number of advantages and disadvantages as the discussion below portrays.
Litigation refers to the use of courts in resolving conflicts.

In every stage, the law enforcers among other parties involved such as the prosecutors must always uphold the dictates of the law that help protect the interests of both the victim and the suspect.
