Excited about this upcoming Legal Tech and ODR conference hosted in early March by our good friend of NCTDR Nancy Welsh — online participation options are available. Get all the details here:
From the conference website:
“Explore the intersection between legal tech and online dispute resolution (ODR), these tools’ different uses in the public and private sectors, and what that should mean for legal education.
Both legal tech and ODR involve the use of technology to assist legal practice and the accomplishment of legally-cognizable outcomes. So why do these two fields seem to exist in separate worlds?
- Where do legal tech and ODR intersect in the public sector – e.g., in the courts, governmental practice, administrative adjudication, the provision of legal services and A2J?
- Where do legal tech and ODR intersect in the private sector – e.g., in private legal practice, in-house corporate legal practice and customer relations, and private arbitration and mediation?
- And perhaps most important, what aspects of legal tech and ODR should law schools make part of our curriculum, in order to prepare our students to use these tools responsibly and well – and even to prepare them to create the next generation of legal tech and ODR?
