Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) is not just one thing. It spans an array of approaches that use web-based communications and (often) artificial intelligence to assist or substitute for human ADR neutrals in varying ways. ODR can potentially help resolve almost any kind of dispute—consumer complaints, commercial and intellectual property disputes, family conflicts, personal injury lawsuits, and beyond. And there are places where ODR is already being used for such purposes, right now.
How do ODR technologies work, exactly? Do they threaten the future livelihood of arbitrators and mediators? What new practice opportunities do they offer? Three superbly qualified panelists will address these questions and more in a 90-minute CLE webinar.
·Colin Rule is among the best-known figures in the ODR field and has spoken on the topic across the globe. He will describe how he helped develop ODR at eBay and PayPal, and discuss ongoing innovations by court systems in Europe that may serve as a model here.
·Judge Arthur M. (“Monty”) Ahalt (Ret.) commenced a second career as an ADR neutral and technology innovator in1999. He will talk about his experience in founding VirtualCourthouse.com, including the resistance he has encountered.
·Harrie Samaras is a full-time arbitrator and mediator for both domestic and international disputes. She will discuss what she has learned through service as an arbitrator on online platforms administered by the American Arbitration Association and World Intellectual Property Organization.
The webinar will be co-moderated by Judge William J. Caprathe (Ret.) and Spencer M. Punnett II.
Who should attend? Practicing lawyers, ADR professionals, judges, court administrators, and anyone else with an interest in the future of dispute resolution in the online age.
