Introducing “Convergence”: A New Podcast on Dispute Resolution & Technology

 

In an exciting development, Oladeji Tiamiyu, HNMCP’s Clinical Fellow, will be hosting a new podcast series called “Convergence: A Podcast on Dispute Resolution & Technology,” which is launching in April 2021. 

This series will explore topics at the intersection of dispute resolution and technology. Oladeji will speak with thought-leaders and leading practitioners in the industry covering topics that include: the role technology has had in resolving disputes during the pandemic; ways that technological tools have historically been incorporated into dispute resolution; and creative use cases that technology presents for resolving disputes into the future.  

When asked about “Convergence,” Oladeji shared “I am deeply humbled to be the host of this series. It is easy to think about dispute resolution and technology as operating in silos yet the pandemic has shown the opposite to be true. The two have always been, and will continue to be, intertwined with one another. This opportunity feels like the stars have aligned because I can engage with fascinating individuals on exciting tech-related topics that I have spent much time thinking about.” 

Prior to joining HNMCP, Oladeji was an Online Dispute Resolution Fellow with the Resolution Systems Institute in Chicago, Illinois where he helped in developing a pilot online dispute resolution program for family law disputes. Oladeji has also worked with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and Constitutional Review Commission in The Gambia. He has experience as a teacher in Reunion Island off the coast of Madagascar and as a community organizer with Organizing for America in Ohio. His research interests includes exploring reconciliation initiatives in the aftermath of national crisis, exploring the intersection between technology and dispute resolution, and strengthening best practices for resolving maritime disputes based on the Law of the Sea.

Oladeji has been a member of teaching teams for Harvard Law School’s Negotiation Workshop, an executive-level program at the Harvard Negotiation Institute, and with the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

He is a member of the Illinois Bar, holds a B.A. in Political Science, magna cum laude, from the University of Toledo, and a J.D. from Harvard Law School.
