Online Dispute Resolution: Coming to a Trial Court Near You

The presentation abstract

Online dispute resolution, a branch of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), is a fast-growing, innovative use a technology to settle disputes between parties. Courts are beginning to move from court-connected ADR proceedings to facilitating internet-based negotiation, mediation and arbitration either as stand-alone approaches or to augment more traditional, formal means of litigation. NCSC recently completed a report on the subject that provides insights for court leaders, and Court Innovations, a startup out of the University of Michigan Law School, has developed software that allows smartphone and computer users to resolve and negotiate infractions, petty misdemeanors, warrants, family court compliance, online pleas, or file a small claims civil case. Come and learn what tomorrow holds.

If you will attend NAPCO/NCSC, please join us at 9:45-10:45AM, Tuesday September 26, San Carlos Room.
