Conference on Online Dispute Resolution


April 19, 2013 9:00am - 5:30pm

Room 180

    Please join us for a discussion on the rapidly expanding area of Online Dispute Resolution (ODR).  In addition to guest speakers, the conference will include breakfast, lunch, and a cocktail hour reception.  SLATA, ADSA, ILS, and the Gould Program on Negotiation and Mediation are co-sponsoring the event.

    Although the capability for ODR has existed for years, the legal and technology communities are only beginning to bridge the gap between potential and actual use of ODR.  There are many open questions.  How will the promise of ODR to resolve disputes efficiently and fairly be realized?  How will ODR affect the practice of law?  What are the specific applications where ODR has provided and will provide the most benefit?  Is regulation of ODR needed at the national, transnational, or international levels?
