March 29, 2010
UNCITRAL, the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law, is hosting a colloquium on dispute resolution and global e-commerce, co-sponsored by Penn State Law and Pace University Law School on March 29 and 30 in Vienna, Austria. Professor Louis Del Duca, one of the organizers of the event entitled "A Fresh Look at Online Dispute Resolution and Global E-Commerce: Toward a Practical and Fair Redress System for the 21st Century Trader (Consumer and Merchant)," will also provide opening remarks. Access is available for the first 50 participants by linking to www.cisg.law.pace.edu
Leading experts from government, private sector, academia and the nonprofit sector will analyze the current cross-border legal framework for e-commerce, look at existing mechanisms for online dispute resolution (ODR), and explore the practicalities of setting up a global ODR for both business-to-business and business-to-consumer disputes. For those unable to attend in person, a podcast of the two-day colloquium will be available for download.
