John A. Speziale Alternative Dispute Resolution Symposium

Overview

Chief Justice Speziale was a pioneer in bringing alternative dispute resolution to Connecticut. As Chief Court Administrator in the mid-1970s, he implemented a massive reorganization of the Connecticut court system, merging the Court of Common Pleas with the Superior Court and laying the groundwork for Connecticut’s Appellate Court. He also established an alternative means of resolving disputes outside the court setting. Under his tutelage, Connecticut became a national model on how to expedite cases.

Quinnipiac University School of Law, 370 Bassett Road, North Haven, CT  06473

The 12th Speziale ADR Symposium, Is Virtual Justice Just?, was held at Quinnipiac University School of Law on Friday, November 4, 2022, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. National experts and trial lawyers joined us to share their unique perspectives and expertise on this topic.

This symposium was divided into two sessions, each with its own focus. The morning session, Virtual Trials: What’s the Verdict?, examined how virtual trials, including virtual juries, have been utilized in various jurisdictions. The afternoon session, Is ODR the Future of ADR?, considered how artificial intelligence is being used in the legal system and discussed the growing use of online dispute resolution (ODR) in Connecticut and across the country.
