This program will provide an up-to-date discussion of concepts to educate mediators and arbitrators on technology-assisted review, or what many refer to as “predictive coding,” the growing litigation in the area of data protection and what happens when that protection is breached, and how mediation can provide a solution to vexing issues in these arenas.

Technology has already come to the courts in the form of case management, filing, scheduling, discovery, and document assembly. These applications, as well as email and other technological tools, should be viewed as providing the foundation for a more ambitious use of technology, namely courts that foster dispute resolution virtually. A new tribunal in British Columbia, for example, will offer most of its services through remote channels like ODR. More generally, we explore uses of some online dispute resolution technology that have become mandatory in some court systems and online technology that supplements rather than replaces face to face processes.
