PenPals – Rohingya “Invisibles” Project

I just started work on a training program associated with the InternetBar.Org  “Invisibles” project.  The volunteers who will work with the Rohingya refugees to rebuild shattered identities as digital identities will be called “PenPals” – I’ve begun working on a training program to certify the volunteers to work with individual refugees.

Veterans A2J Revisited

The Memphis VA project, providing mediation services to veterans who are referred by the social workers at the VA in Memphis, is finally ready for rollout.  I was in Memphis last week doing some mediation techniques training for the social workers, and Trokt has held a final round of training for the attorney-mediators.

Justice Re-Imagined

The Liverpool ODR conference (web site) will address a broad range of issues related to access to justice and the integration of technology into court systems worldwide.  I will address “Artificial Intelligence and ODR:  What we Can do and what we Should do.”  I will talk about some of the things that the integration of technology will not do, at least not automatically.  Here’s the program description:  

As we push ahead with the integration of AI into online dispute resolution, we are overwhelmed with ideas about what AI can do.  Now, as we push the boundaries of ODR, we should be talking about what impact AI can and will have on some of the less obvious and less discussed individuals and groups who may rely on ODR as a pathway to “justice” or problem solving.

CyberWeek 2018

CyberWeek 2018 is scheduled for May 7-11, and will be held in conjunction with ODRLatinoAmerica’s “E-Mark 2018.”  The content is still in the planning stages, but the format for 2018 includes “tracks” that will each take up one day of CyberWeek – the tracks will include days devoted to ODR and the court system, ODR and the influence of artificial intelligence on “traditional” practice, and ODR in education and research.  CyberWeek will also feature a stream of Peace Tech Lab’s Summit being held during the same week.

The Holidays from Hell

November and December 2017 were pretty much lost months for me due to some unexpected medical surprises.  I am happy to say that I am past what I think is the worst of the complications and I’m back on track to “normal” work.  Coming up in the near future are continuing work with the Virginia Supreme Court’s Access to Justice Commission Self-Represented Litigants Committee, the National Center for State Courts ODR Standards Working Group, the Legal Forum in Saint Petersburg, an AI conference in the UK, the ODR Forum in New Zealand, and of course the International Journal of Online Dispute Resolution and the InternetBar.Org projects.  It looks like a busy year, and so far as I can tell, my health is ok and I’ll be able to fulfill all commitments.  Happy belated New Year to all.

Veterans A2J Project

It looks like we now have enough volunteer mediators to kick off the access to justice program for veterans through the InternetBar.Org, Trokt, the ABA Section of Dispute Resolution, and the VA in Memphis.  I’ll be in Memphis in early December to do some basic mediation training for the VA social workers, and I’ll work with Chris Draper at Trokt to set up online training for the mediators.  The project, bringing free legal advice on issues related to parenting orders (child custody, etc.) to the veteran community has been in development for several months – we are rapidly nearing the actual launch.
