Liveblogging #ODR2014: ICT and Environmental/Multiparty Disputes

I’m here at the ODR2014 conference. ODR2014 is the annual meeting of the Online Dispute Resolution Forum, an international assembly of lawyers, mediators, technologists, and others who care about technology and dispute resolution.

The livestream is here. What follows is a best efforts summary of the session. 


Colin introduces Jason Gershowitz, Senior Collaborative Technology Associate at the strategic communications and collaboration firm Kearns & West (and former wilderness camp counselor), and Scott Fulton, Former General Counsel of the United States Environmental Protection Agency, who are here to talk about ODR and the environment.

Scott starts by saying he's not tech guy, he's an environmental lawyer, but he's been peripherally affiliated with various ODR folks for many years and he's happy to contribute the conference. He offers to provide some context on the possibilities of ODR in environmental disputes.
