In May 2020, the Conflict Analytics Lab launched the first suite of open-access Artificial Intelligence tools: MyOpenCourt. The tools will help workers to determine their termination compensation as well as assess whether a worker is an employee or an independent contractor. In addition, MyOpenCourt will connect members of the public with lawyers for an initial pro bono consultation related to dismissals. Professor Dahan is looking for about a dozen alumni who can field general questions about the law. Labour law is preferred, but many of the questions can be answered by lawyers with a general JD. If you'd like to get involved, please complete our sign-up form.

We conduct analytics research on the application of Artificial Intelligence to dispute resolution and negotiation. We have assembled a team of researchers from the fields of Management Sciences, Operations Management, Marketing, Information Systems, Finance, Business Economics and Computing Science. For more details about the practical applications of this research, see our latest paper.
