Expert Views on ADR (EVA) vid /podcast show Nov 2023 Quotes with Mediate.com

Expert Views on ADR (EVA) vid /podcast show Nov 2023 Quotes with Prof Clare Fowler, Colin Rule and Dr Ron Dolin, renowned ADR experts that built up the world’s leading mediation website and organization- Mediate.com
‘When I first started working in the mediation industry around 20-25 years ago, the entire process used to be extremely time-consuming and tedious. I had to spend countless hours sending letters back and forth, typing out documents, and travelling to the post office to mail them. However, with the incorporation of cutting-edge technology, we have now been able to streamline these tasks and focus more on the actual mediation process. This has made the entire process faster and more efficient, allowing us to get to where the magic happens faster.’- Professor Clare Fowler (Vice-Presdient Mediate.com and President of Fowler Mediation).
‘Society is rapidly transitioning into a digital age, and the world is becoming more interconnected. We can use the tools of technology. Professor Frank Sander, a pioneer in the field, could not have imagined what we can do now with artificial intelligence (AI) and mediate.com’ -Colin Rule (CEO of Mediate.com, Odr.com and Arbitrate.com; the 2023 recipient of the D’Alemberte / Raven Award American Bar Association Dispute Resolution). “If all we cared about was efficiency, we would resolve disputes with a coin toss”- Dr Ron Dolin (Chief Innovation Officer for Odr.com and Harvard Law Lecturer /Senior Research Fellow).
The Achievement and Impact of Mediate.com on EVA show.

ADR and Collaborative Law with Prof Kevin Scudder-#Inlovingmemory #tribute

#Tribute to an ADR Legend- Professor Kevin Scudder 

It was an honour having Professor Kevin Scudder as a guest on Expert Views on ADR (EVA) vid/podcast Show; he was a good listener, down-to-earth, empathetic, intelligent, kind and an incredible teacher with a keen eye for detail-“Chinwe, I noticed you don’t have Collaborative law on your slide as one of the dispute resolution processes.”

I have added Collaborative Law as one of the Appropriate methods of settling disputes to my slide and my podcast channel, and I use appropriate instead of alternative. Of course, Kevin is passionate about peacebuilding and was willing to share everything he knew about Collaborative law within thirty (30) mins. I was privileged to attend your training/ seminar American Bar Association Dispute Resolution conference in May in #lasvegas. I learned much about the two things you love -collaborative law and your family. You connected the two perfectly well.

Your passion for collaborative law practice was truly inspiring. Your dedication to promoting peace and cooperation through collaborative law practice will not be forgotten.

Thank you for contributing to making the world a better place through peacemaking. Thank you for being so passionate about ADR, for your kindness and for coming on the show in a short amount of time and making it so easy for me to be myself and ask relevant follow-up questions.

Indeed, you lived what you preached; “Peacemaking, let it begin with me.”

If Kindness was someone’s name, it could be your name. Rest in peace, legend!

 

Kevin is the founder of the Seattle Collaborative Law Center, PLLC:

#Quote by Kevin Scudder:

‘Chinwe and Caroline, You are both powerful presences in the Podcast universe. Chinwe, Caroline is leading the creation of the ABA podcast; Caroline, Chinwe is leading her own charge on bringing peacemaking to the masses. I will definitely listen! And I think the two of you would enjoy each other’s company.’
