Professor Schmitz: Free resources posted on

Professor Amy J. Schmitz is creating a free video resource on, which is maintained by the National Center for Technology and Dispute Resolution.

In this video, Professor Schmitz and Noam Ebner of Creighton University’s Department of Interdisciplinary Studies, discuss the creation of governance structures for the field of Online Dispute Resolution (ODR). The two revisit Noam’s paper with Professor John Zeleznikow of the University of Victoria, Melbourne, Australia No Sheriff in Town: Governance for Online Dispute Resolution (Negotiation Journal, Vol. 32(4), 2016) and consider the many developments in the field and its governance that have occurred since the article was written.

In “ODR Progress and Insights: Court System Design & Accessibility for Persons with Disabilities,” Professor Schmitz interviewed Prof. David Larson (Mitchell Hamline School of Law). As co-chairs of American Bar Association ODR Standards Task Force and ABA Dispute Resolution Section’s Technology Committee, they share some insights from their experiences, including Prof. Larson commenting on System Design for the New York State Unified Court System’s ODR system. The two also discuss ways to ensure persons with disabilities can access ODR.
