ODR Ethics and Standards: What Do They Mean to Our Practices? Thursday, June 9, 2022 @ 11am-12:30pm EST https://umass-amherst.zoom.us/j/98085295001
This international panel is moderated by Leah Wing & Daniel Rainey and jointly sponsored by The National Center for Technology and Dispute Resolution & The International Council for Online Dispute Resolution. The National Center for Technology and Dispute Resolution, birthplace of ODR, issued a first set of ODR Standards that it has revised in 2022 jointly with the International Council for Online Dispute Resolution (ICODR). The panel includes NCDTR Fellows and ICODR members Mirèze Philippe, Morenike Obi-Farinde, Ana Maria Maia Gonçalves, and Mohamed S. Abdel Wahab. We will discuss the relevance and implications for employing ODR ethical standards in light of the new risks that ODR raises and ways it can compound on-going ethical concerns for ADR and courts (e.g.: data security, confidentiality, power imbalances, and AI-enhanced and repeat player biases). Panelists will explore the role of ODR standards in the ethical and accountable delivery of ODR across a wide spectrum of jurisdictions, sectors, and types of practice. This event will be recorded and posted in our NCTDR Webinar Archive.
