Webinar: Justice Layer of the Internet

This afternoon I’ll participate with Jeff Aresty and Larry Bridgesmith in a webinar addressing the Justice Layer of the Internet. Topics will include a discussion of what “The Justice Layer” is, how current legal systems have failed, how the Justice Layer fits with the UN Sustainable Goals, and what it means to have a “social justice” agenda today. I’ll post an audio of my comments as soon as they are available.

ODR CME

The Virginia Supreme Court has approved the development of a technology course to add to the menu of training for mediators certified to accept court-referred cases in Virginia.

The CME (continuing mediation education) course will, in the words of the Supreme Court mandate: “provide training on how to use electronic tools such as e-mail, Drop-Box, and other file sharing tools in an ethical manner that ensures preservation of confidentiality of information both during and after the mediation. . . . [and] may be expanded to summarize issues surrounding online dispute resolution, the way in which artificial intelligence can support Online Dispute Resolution (ODR), and the ethical considerations associated with both. Depending on responses to the CMEs, the module also may be included in the mandatory training mediators must undergo in order to be certified as court-referred mediators.”

As a member of the SRL Committee I suggested the development of the course, and I am a member of the sub-committee that will develop and test the module. Although some state bar associations have made technology training mandatory for lawyers, to my knowledge this will be the first ODR/technology course endorsed as a mediation CLE by a state supreme court in the US.

Latin America

In September, Ana Maria Goncalves and I will host a course consisting of a series of webinars and online exercises leading to a certificate of completion in e-mediation. The course will be offered in Portuguese and English simultaneously. The English langauge flyer can be found here: E-Mediation.

By September or October Alberto Elisavetsky’s new book, “La mediacion a la luz de las nuevas technologias” (Mediation in Light of New Technologies) should also be published. Alberto asked me to write a short blurb on the future of ODR, which can be found in English and Spanish here: ODR.

SMU ODR Class

A terrific group for the ODR class at SMU – we finish the class tomorrow, if we don’t get swept away by the torrential rain and winds.
