Education and Training Requirements

High School

Many arbitrators have backgrounds in law and business, so you should take a college preparatory curriculum that includes classes in business, government, social studies, mathematics, science, psychology, and computer science. Arbitrators must be able to communicate effectively with claimants, as well as other arbitrators, so be sure to take speech and writing courses. Learning a foreign language—such as Spanish—will allow you to take on cases that involve claimants who do not speak English fluently or at all. Fluency in a foreign language will also allow you to work in other countries.
