Giuseppe Leone, founder of Virtual Mediation Lab, a project sponsored by the Association for Conflict Resolution Hawaii Chapter, believes that online mediation offers two important benefits.
First, it can be very useful for resolving disputes when parties:
>> Have a mobile device: e.g. Ipad, iPhone, Android tablet or smartphone
>> Want or need to settle their dispute as soon as possible, with the assistance of a neutral mediator
>> Cannot afford an in-person mediation
Second, given that most people already have and use regularly a mobile device, online mediation can open up new business opportunities, especially for young, innovative mediators.
To demonstrate those two benefits of online mediation, Virtual Mediation Lab is seeking college students trained in mediation, willing to play the mediator’s role or the role of one of the parties/roommates in 3 online mediation simulations in October 2017.
