Thank you Michael and all-
I am happy to speak by phone with anyone who may wonder what this is about before they offer to help further. I can be reached at 650 363-4148.
I have confirmed Colin Rule from EBay/Paypal speaking on Nov. 2nd about Online dispute resolution at EBay. I recognize Wikipedia encounters a very different set of dispute issues.
I would like to explore whether there might be an interesting case study that a speaker and I could work up to help these second and third year law students with an interest in alternative dispute resolution grapple with how to set up a dispute resolution system (that is outside the courts and the commercial sector) that works well. I am curious about Wikipedia's efforts on this.
I am afraid I can't offer money but I would be happy to take my guest out for a meal in advance where we could discuss/prepare a bit.
If it doesn't work out I understand and thank you for considering the request.

Sheila Purcell is teaching a Dispute System Design class this fall at Hasting College of the Law and was hoping to have a guest speaker discuss what the structure and process is for resolving such disputes at Wikipedia.
If anyone is interested or knows someone that could help out please contact Sheila.
