Exclusively for our valued Alumni and their friends, this is an exciting opportunity to take part in this select Masters elective for professional development without the onerous requirements of a full student enrolment.
Investigate Online Dispute Resolution (ODR), taking a practical and interdisciplinary approach.
CLASS DATES: Tuesday 9 May, 2.00 - 6.00pm Face to Face Preliminary Seminar
Online Modules will follow on Tuesday & Thursday Evenings, 16 May - 20 June 2017, 6.00 - 7.30pm
Dual Delivery Mode
This is a dual delivery mode, meaning attendees from the Alumni & Friends Program and Law Masters students share the classroom experience. Alumni & Friends attendees are not enrolled as students and do not complete unit assessment for credit.
The class first examines the emergence of ODR, the range of technologies involved and the contexts in which they are applied. It will explore the relationship between ODR and appropriate dispute resolution, and its impact on the work of lawyers and the legal profession. It then moves to consider the regulation and governance of ODR system design and operation. The class also explores the evaluation of ODR, including its suitability for varieties of disputes and disputants, its impact on access to justice and practical approaches for assessing the performance of ODR systems.
