Instant Mediations Podcast, Plus

The “Plus” is that I have over the past month recorded a few video sessions on topics related to ADR and ODR. There’s a video on Standards and Ethics that I did with Mediate.com – Standards (from @00:39:00 through 01:04:25) – and one that I did in conjuction with the ODRLatinoAmerica Expo on ODR as a choice of communication channels – ODR as Com (from @04:10:30-04:27:30 and @04:36:30-04:39:30). In addition, I just recorded a shortish (20 minute) session with Mac and Natalia from Instant Mediations. This session will be part of an ongoing podcast and streamed series on various topics related to mediation. The session I just recorded is available here – Human. All of the sessions will be available through the Instant Mediations web site – IM

ODRLatinoAmerica

I just got this nice acknowledgement from Alberto Elisavetsky at ODRLatinoAmerica, the premier online dispute resolution organization in Latin America. Alberto and ODRL are amazingly active – they do a huge amount of training and education around the region, and they regularly host ODR events like the ODR EXPO that just ran late last month. I am honored to be recognized by ODRLatinoAmerica.

Publications

The latest edition of the IJODR (hard copy and electronic) are now out. Volume 8 issue 1 is with the text editors (including a re-translated article produced by Larry Bridgesmith and me for publication in Portuguese as a chapter in a book in Brazil), and I will soon announce a second call for student essays to make up the second issue of Volume 8 later this yeear. In addition, we are finally nearing the publication date for the ODR Theory and Practice Book – it’s been a long, strange trip, with a COVID detour in the middle, but we are nearly there.

Upcoming Events

On March 19, I will present, with Colin Rule and Jeff Aresty, at the 35th anniversary convention of the Texas Association of Mediators – the event is online and finally happening after being postponed due to the severe storms in Texas last month. Our topic will be “Zoom to AI: The Future of ODR.” On April 29, I will be one of the English language presenters at the ODR conference sponsored by ODRLatinAmeria. The focus of the five-day conference will be broad, covering training, platforms, ethics, and future trends.

Wrapping Up . . . .

The photo is from last night, at the last meeting of one of the two most recent ODR classes – with students from the US, Brazil, and Angola. Tonight Ana and I will wrap up the first Australian edition of the class – after 8 class meetings over 15 weeks. In addition to these online classes, I’m finally getting to the finish line with some other things that will wrap up from now through the beginning of February.

  • A law school ODR course for McGeorge School of Law (University of the Pacific);
  • Editing the 2nd Edition of ODR Theory and Practice (edited with Ethan Katsh and Mohamed Abdel Wahab, now in the hands of the publisher);
  • Editing the latest edition of the International Journal of Online Dispute Resolution;
  • Contributing a chapter on ODR and the courts to a book being published in Brazil (with Larry Bridgesmith).

There are a lot of other irons in the fire, but these are finally coming off my to-do list. I’m smiling.
