A Look at the Future of Mediation

Open Ninth - Episode 88

Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) is coming to the Ninth Circuit. On this episode of Open Ninth, Chief Judge Don Myers talks to mediator Christy Foley and ODR software specialist Jamie Gillespie about traditional mediation and the shift to ODR. Using mediation, the disputing parties may avoid going to court. Using ODR, those parties can access the mediation process and discuss their case anywhere, at any time, at their convenience.
