CLEVELAND - May 10, 2023 - PRLog -- ADR Notable, the first-in-kind cloud-based dispute resolution case and practice management platform, announced today that it will make its platform available free of charge to law school alternative dispute resolution programs. Founder Gary Doernhoefer, a 2021 Top 20 Legal Tech CEO, made the announcement today at the American Bar Association Dispute Resolution Section Annual Conference in Las Vegas. ADR has been used for the last two years in a course at The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, the top-ranked Dispute Resolution Law program, with Pepperdine University, in the 2023 U.S. News and World Report rankings.
"We've been extremely pleased with how easily the students have adapted to using the platform," said Doernhoefer. "When preparing a case, they can note the issues and facts in a dispute, just as they would have done on a legal pad in days gone by. Now, their notes are more secure, can be shared with co- mediators and faculty, and are available to them anywhere, at any time. Then, during a session, they can use the patented Digital Noteboard to work with proposals as they arise, in such a way as to help generate movement toward agreement among the disputing parties. This is the way they are used to working."
Doernhoefer sees two distinct applications for the ADR Notable platform in law schools. One is for use during mock mediations in a class, providing an easy way to introduce the still relatively new use of technology throughout the entire mediation process. The other is for use in a Mediation Clinic, where students get hands-on experience mediating real cases in their communities, from family disputes to landlord-tenant disputes, to neighborhood issues and other civil matters.
Free use of the platform will be available for the 2023-24 academic year, but law schools can initiate the process starting immediately. Visit http://www.adrnotable.com/
