The Future of Justice
Tuesday, July 26, 2011 from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM (EDT)
BE A PART OF THE GLOBAL COMMUNITY SHAPING NEW BUSINESS MODELS FOR TECHNOLOGY-MEDIATED DISPUTE RESOLUTION
A technology-mediated justice system is taking shape around us. What began as e-filing and online docketing has transitioned into the use of technology to enable the average citizen in creating complex legal documents, crowdsourcing legal information, and allowing lawyers and clients to interact on a virtual platform. These developments have merely touched the surface of technology’s influence on dispute resolution, the practice of law, and the justice system as a whole.
The Future of Justice program addresses this exciting future and offers insights from leading industry professionals on the critical issues facing technology and the justice system and what this future will look like. By addressing one of the main focal points of all justice systems, dispute resolution, the program looks at the history, past, and future of the industry that has come to be known as online dispute resolution.
Program participants will gain greater understanding of the past, present and future of online justice systems, how international organizations, NGOs, and the private sector are positioning themselves to shape the system, and how your business will be impacted as a result.
