Special Webinar Presentation by Noam Ebner, Colleen Getz and Susanna Jani on "ODR: Making the "Green in the Machine" Work for You."

A recent paper published by Noam Ebner and Colleen Getz in Conflict Resolution Quarterly (The paper, “ODR: The Next Green Giant” can be downloaded for free from here: http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=1993192), demonstrated the environmental benefits enjoyed by Online Dispute Resolution over other forms of dispute resolution.

In follow-up to this paper there will be a free webinar on the topic, hosted by Creighton University, School of Law’s ADRHub. Noam Ebner has invited Colleen Getz (Evaluator for Mediate BC's Distance Family Mediation Project) and Susanna Jani, (Project Manager for the Distance Family Mediation Project) to join him for a discussion on this topic, given the green lens this project applied to dispute resolution.

The webinar will be on May 14th, 3 – 4 pm (PST). You can register for it at: http://adrhubmay2012-estw.eventbrite.com.

Here is a description of what will be discussed in the webinar: ODR: Making the “Green in the Machine” Work for You A Presentation by Noam Ebner, Colleen Getz, and Susanna Jani Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) is becoming widely accepted, with its proponents pointing out the advantages that harnessing the power of the Internet offers to dispute resolution. These benefits include enhanced flexibility, expertise, and accessibility, as well as reduced costs, time-investment and travel. One clear benefit of ODR which has not been spotlighted, however, is the environmental advantage which ODR enjoys over any other form of dispute resolution.

In this webinar, we will explore the nature and value of this advantage, presenting case studies which illustrate how significant this advantage is. We will also address the fundamental question of ‘What’s in it for us?’ Benefit to the planet aside – what do ODR practitioners, and the ODR field, stand to gain from spotlighting ODR’s environmental aspects? And – what might we do in order to achieve these gains?
