As a nonprofit organization, the MAA provides the public with information about maritime dispute resolution, arranges professional education and training for neutrals, and administers the resolution of maritime disputes through mediation, arbitration, and other out-of-court methods for settlement.

Published materials are made available for your use through this website as a public service and reflect the views of those who created them, not necessarily those of the MAA. This information should not be considered legal advice. We urge you to consult with competent legal counsel in any matters affecting your legal rights, such as contracts and ADR proceedings.
