About the Event
With the growing popularity of virtual reality and augmented reality, there has been a paradigm shift in the way we interact with others. The Covid-19 pandemic only propelled us into this age of digital interaction and even doing business online.
The concept of metaverse has gained traction in recent times as it provides a getaway to a digital landscape wherein other concepts such as digitized currency/crypto, digital assets (e.g.,- NFT and Digital Land, and even office spaces that are virtual offices and help desks have been brought together to create a truly unique way of interacting in today’s time).
These interactions revolve around technologies like blockchain and essentially advocate for a decentralized world.
ADR Cell of USLLS, is organizing an academic conference on the topic “Resolving Disputes in the Metaverse” to initiate thought-provoking discussions and explore and analyse various aspects of disputes that may arise in the metaverse while taking a glimpse at how ADR mechanisms are feasible for such disputes and how we can harness the potential of these methods with the help of technology.
