New APEC Paper on ODR Best Practices
APEC (Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation) has just released a new paper on ODR best practices.
From the description:
“Online Dispute Resolution, or ODR, has the potential to align the justice system with our digital society through use of advanced technologies. As more APEC providers and economies roll out ODR, concrete recommendations to guide existing players and new market entrants are crucial so that all get ODR right. This study details best practices in designing ODR platforms using a user-centric approach, basic principles relating to ODR providers and neutrals, special considerations regarding the use of ODR in courts, and extending the use of ODR in consumer cases.”

ODR Forum March 17-18 in Bengaluru (Bangalore), India
Upcoming ODR/Legaltech Event in Texas, March 3
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?
Confirmed presenters include:
- Ann Baddour, Director, Fair Financial Services Project, Texas Appleseed
- Alyson Carrel, Co-Director, Center on Negotiation, Mediation, and Restorative Justice, Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law
- Margaret Hagan, Executive Director, Legal Design Lab, Stanford Law School
- William Henderson, Stephen F. Burns Professor of Law, Indiana University Maurer School of Law
- Dwayne Hermes, Co-Founder, ClaimDeck
- Jonathan Pyle, Contract Performance Officer, Philadelphia Legal Assistance
- Colin Rule, Practitioner-in-Residence, Texas A&M University School of Law, & CEO, Mediate.com and Arbitrate.com
- Amy Schmitz, Professor & John Deaver Drinko-Baker & Hostetler Chair in Law, Moritz College of Law, The Ohio State University”
First Demo Integration of ODR and ChatGPT3
Kudos to Bob Bergman of NextLevelMediation.com on completing the first integration of ChatGPT into an ODR platform! (as far as I know)
Check out the video below showing off the functionality. It really is impressive, and it opens a whole new world of possibilities for ODR.
Well done, Bob, and the whole NextLevelMediation team. I feel like I felt the first time I saw an LCD projector or wireless internet: this is going to change everything.

The First Metaverse Trial Opened in a Local Court in China
The Siming Court is a basic-level people’s court located in Xiamen, a coast city in southeastern Fujian province beside the Taiwan Strait. It held a “metaverse” trial in which two traffic accident-related cases were heard. The graduate students of Xiamen University Law School observed the entire trial process. On September 23, www.people.com.cn published a news article titled, “Metaverse + Court Trial + Classroom Teaching— the Siming Court in Xiamen promotes Digitalization and Intelligentization” of the Court System.” The news is available in English and in Chinese. Info on the metaverse technology provision can be found here.
