Next Up . . . A Day With . . .

 

This will be my first trip to Brazil – I will be honored to share the podium with a group of distinguished lawyers and judges in Sao Paulo for a series of discussions related to online dispute resolution and the justice system.  The “Day With” will be followed by a Master Class that I will teach with Julia and Ana Goncalves, and then I’ll deliver the closing keynote address at a conference in Rio.

Model Standards & Mediator Ethics Comments

At the 2018 conference in Pittsburgh I announced the availability of the comments related to the ACR/ABA/AAA Model Standards for Mediators.  Soon after the conference, the comments will be posted on the ACR web site, but for the moment they can be found via a link to handouts for the ODR Ethics panel in the ACR conference schedule, and here:  STANDARDS WITH COMMENTS.

At the panel on Thursday afternoon, I joined colleagues Colin Rule and Jason Gershowitz to talk about the impact of technology on mediator ethics.  The Power Point handout for my talk can be found here: Hand Out, and notes for my comments can be found here:  Technology and Mediator Ethics Comments.

I was privileged to join Larry Bridgesmith, Cat Moon, and Jeff Aresty at the Tennessee Alliance for Legal Services conference to do a presentation on the state of access to justice for self-represented litigants, and those generally un-served by the legal and dispute resolution systems.  Notes for my presentation can be found here:  TALS Murfreesboro.

Accord & IEEE-SA

 

 

 

 

I have joined the Accord Project, contributing what I can to discussions about smart contracts and blockchain technology as they apply to access to justice initiatives.

I have also agreed, thanks to an invitation from Zbynek Loebl,  to participate in an IEEE-SA Working Group to discuss basic standards for ODR platforms and providers.

Justice Report on Digital Exclusion

The Justice report on digital exclusion, for which I was interviewed, has been released.  The Justice group describes itself as follows:

Established in 1957 by a group of leading jurists, JUSTICE is an all-party law reform and human rights organisation working to strengthen the justice system – administrative, civil and criminal – in the United Kingdom. We are a membership organisation, composed largely of legal professionals, ranging from law students to the senior judiciary.

Our vision is of fair, accessible and efficient legal processes, in which the individual’s rights are protected, and which reflect the country’s international reputation for upholding and promoting the rule of law.

The final report is available here:  JUSTICE.
