LAW 2722 - ADR in the Information Society
This course explores the rules, principles and difficulties embedded in dispute resolution in an information society.
Dispute resolution in the Internet era is increasingly ruled directly by the rules of the involved community (e.g. the so called law of e-bay) but specific rules are designed in addition to the traditional ones (e.g. EU proposed and enacted regulations). The course explores, 1) how contract and national/supranational regulations interact in regulating ADR over the internet and for internet businesses; 2) how dispute resolution techniques and legal rules applied in the “real world” react to and/or if they require specific adaptation to the information society setting.
