Social Media And Social Networking Platforms For ODR Are Needed

Social Media And Social Networking Platforms For ODR Are NeededSocial media or social networking platforms and websites are playing a very important role in professional networking and building relationships. However, all of the well known social media platforms are proprietary and are owned by private companies.

This is more so when it comes to novel fields like online dispute resolution (ODR) where even basic level networking is in its infancy stage. The Techno Legal Centre of Excellence for Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) in India (TLCEODRI) has taken some steps in this regard that would go a long way in social and professional networking among the ODR community.

The ODR Forum of TLCEODRI is the first initiative in this regard. This is a discussion forum to discuss ODR and related issues. The second initiative is a dedicated ODR Social Media and Social Networking Platform by TLCEODRI. This Platform is the first of its type in India and world wide. Its objective is to test a suitable open source social media platform for ODR purposes.

TLCEODRI has already tested many ODR related software and we would come up with our techno legal research results in this regard very soon. We would also initiate some techno legal polls for ODR and related topics. We invite partnership and sponsorship offers in this regard. Please contact us in this regard with your interest and a concrete proposal.

 

Resolve Without Litigation (RWL) Project Of Perry4Law Organisation (P4LO)

Resolve Without Litigation (RWL) Project Of Perry4Law Organisation (P4LO)Litigation is not the preferred mode of dispute resolution due to huge expenses and its time consuming nature. Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods like arbitration, negotiation, conciliation, etc have been effectively used in the past to mitigate litigation related rigours.

However, ADR has it own limitations and it was felt to formulate much better and economical methods to resolve disputes. Information and communication technology (ICT) came to the rescue of disputants in this situation.

Online dispute resolution (ODR) has emerged as the most viable option to traditional litigation. However, ODR in India has not been accepted and adopted to the desired level. Perry4Law organisation (P4LO) has been managing few ODR related projects in India and abroad.

These include Online Dispute Resolution Platform of PTLB and Resolve Without Litigation (RWL) Project of Perry4Law Organisation (P4LO). PTLB and P4LO are also managing the exclusive Techno Legal Centre of Excellence for Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) in India (TLCEODRI).

Our premier project named Resolve Without Litigation (RWL) would be operational very soon and that would transform the way disputes are resolved outside the court through use of ICT. The RWL project would cater the need of both national and international stakeholders and disputants.

We hope these projects and initiatives of P4LO and PTLB would be useful to all concerned.
