City wise Coordinators required for Virtual ODR Forum

In working towards a vision to make India a Global hub for ODR, is taking steps at professional capacity building by making young advocates ready for ODR.

While the facility for conducting ODR is ready with, the user community is yet to gear itself up to take advantage of the available opportunity to be among the first to develop expertise in ODR and start offering their services.

In our preliminary survey of the market, it is found that many arbitration centers that have been established in India are already conducting ADR proceedings but are not yet into using ODR. Some of these institutions have expressed that even ADR needs to be promoted to some extent now and the new generation of ADR professionals will automatically take up ODR.

In order to develop the ADR community therefore, there is a need for an organizational effort to promote the concept of ADR and ODR simultaneously. which was in the forefront of promoting Cyber Laws starting from 1998 when the draft E Commerce Act came under discussion, now has taken up the “Mission-ODR” to promote the concept of ODR.

As a part of this effort, has proposed to build a “Global Forum of Virtual ODR Professionals”. As a beginning, the forum would be set up in all major cities in India starting with Bangalore. Each city will first have a Coordinator who will assist the development of the forum. provides the back end support with necessary guidance including framing of Standard operating Procedures for the forum.

Members will get services to develop their ADR skills and form themselves either into their own Arbitration units or join any of the established permanent ADR institutions.

As always, we consider this as a project in which community interest is involved and support would be forthcoming from the community.
