It's 'ODR Cyberweek'

Jason Krause's article in the current issue of the ABA Journal, Settling it on the Web, highlights the growing popularity of online dispute resolution. If his article leaves you wanting to learn more, here is your chance: ODR Cyberweek 2007 is taking place all this week with a series of programs about this developing field. Even better, it is all free and all online, so you need neither leave your desk nor open your wallet.

This is the 10th year running for this online conference, which is sponsored by the National Center for Technology and Dispute Resolution and the Internet Bar Organization. A number of scheduled programs remain for the week, including one on which I am a panelist, "40 ADR Web Sites in 60 Minutes," based on a presentation originally given by New Zealand mediator and blogger Geoff Sharp. Other programs this week will include panels on "Mediation Excellence in Cyberspace," "Conflict Resolution for the 'New Values' Worldspace" and "Taking Peacemaking Public."

Read all about it here, then register here. (And one more shameless plug for anyone in the Boston area: I am chairing an Oct. 18 Massachusetts Bar Association lunchtime panel, Online Dispute Resolution, with two leaders in the field as speakers.)
