As the pandemic forced many of us to move our lives online, many mediators looked to the field of online dispute resolution (ODR) for best practices and lessons learned. Developed over the last twenty years (largely in response to the growth of eCommerce) the ODR field has generated a deep well of theory and practice while also identifying potential ethical dilemmas and risks.

In Colin’s clinic, he will talk about the rise of ODR, describe what we know and what we still need to know, and sketch out a vision for the future where technology (referred to as the “fourth party” in ODR parlance) plays an integral role in how we mediate disputes across society. Colin will conclude with a Q&A session.
