As the world becomes increasingly digital, it’s no surprise that the legal industry is following suit.
In particular, online dispute resolution (ODR) is gaining traction as an efficient and effective way to resolve disputes remotely. In a recent article titled “Litigation: A digital future,” Savannah Seymour explores the potential benefits of ODR and how it’s changing the legal landscape.
The article notes that ODR can provide a way to resolve disputes without the need for physical presence, saving time and money for all parties involved. Additionally, ODR can make the process more accessible to those who may have trouble traveling or attending in-person hearings. While there are still some challenges to be addressed, such as ensuring access to justice for all and improving digital infrastructure, the article suggests that ODR has the potential to be a game-changer for the legal industry. As more people become comfortable with technology and remote working becomes the norm, ODR is likely to become an increasingly important part of the dispute resolution process.
