The introduction of technology into the mediation process beyond asynchronous ODR platforms has fully arrived. As a trailblazer of technology in mediation, ADR Notable is now available free of charge to law school ADR programs for use in their mediation clinics or classrooms.
Using ADR Notable in the classroom is a great catalyst for law students to think about how technology can help in mediation – in person or online. Students find it fun to use, and it serves as a great focal point for discussions about the utility of current technology, risks and how they can be addressed, and spurs their imagination regarding digital system design. I’m planning on using it again in my course, Dispute Resolution in the Digital Age.
The Mediation Clinic at OSU’s Moritz College of Law has been privileged to work with the ADR Notable team for a handful of years. Clinic students have used the digital platform as a tool during synchronous online mediation sessions. The platform permits mediators to review and store mediation files in a secure format, while supporting mediators as they track negotiable issues, proposals, and party perspectives. ADR Notable demonstrates how mediators can use technology to assist their practice in our increasingly digital world.
