Welcome to the 2012-2013 Mayhew-Hite Report (the “Report”).  My name is Adam Vernick.  I am a third-year Juris Doctor Candidate at the Moritz College of Law and the new editor of the Report.  Volume 11, Issue 1 of the Report focuses on Online Dispute Resolution (“ODR”).

For those of you who are new to the Report, it is an online publication created by the dedicated staff and supporters of the Journal on Dispute Resolution (“JDR”) here at the Moritz College of Law.  A typical issue consists of a lead article, summaries of a recent legal decision and recent scholarly article involving ADR issues, a “Student Spotlight” section featuring a piece of writing from a current Moritz J.D. Candidate, and a “Headline News” section highlighting significant happenings in and around the Moritz ADR community.

Keeping with recent tradition, each issue of this year’s Report will have a unifying theme.  ODR was chosen as the theme for this issue in light of significant recent developments in the area and in anticipation of “CyberWeek 2012: The annual virtual conference dedicated to innovations & development in Online Dispute Resolution.”  As indicated in the title, CyberWeek is a “virtual” conference.  Participation is free and is facilitated via discussion forums, webinars, and simulations of ODR tools and applications.  To register and for more information on CyberWeek 2012, to be hosted by the Werner Institute at Creighton University October 29 – November 2, please visit the Cyberweek 2012 website..

I will leave you with the reminder that the Report always welcomes feedback and suggestions for improvement.  If you, the reader, have a topic, article, or case that you would like to see included in a future issue, please email me.  Additionally, if you would like to submit a paper for the Lead Article feature, please contact me to discuss that opportunity.

Thank you for reading.

Adam Vernick
