Here, the abstract of the contribution: “We are presenting the project CREA (has received funding from the European Union) which aims to introduce new mechanisms of dispute resolution as a helping tool in legal procedures for lawyers, mediators and judges with the objective to reach an agreement between the parties; in some situations, it could be used directly by citizens. The project is based on revisions and innovations on the Adjusted Winner algorithm, developed by S. J. Brams, and specific adaptations to the law domain. We believe that the new procedure will have the potential to deeply change national and cross-border civil proceedings”.
