Dispute Resolution

Tech Tools
On-demand · 1.5 CPD units


Moving away from the manual processes when it comes to dispute resolution is accelerated by the massive volume of electronic documents and communications.

The right tech tool and approach might help legal professionals discover valuable information regarding a matter while reducing costs, speeding up resolutions, and mitigating risks.

Through an expert panel discussion, case study and tech tool demonstrations, in this session, we will discuss:

  • What types of dispute resolution technologies are out there?
  • How to use this tech effectively including for cost control of disputes and investigations.
  • What types of data and content should be considered?
  • Regulatory obligations around tech.
  • What skills are needed.
  • Can tech facilitate the just, quick and cheap resolution of disputes?
  • Key considerations for selecting tech including where is the court system heading?
