The law school offers a comprehensive ADR curriculum. With education in the core dispute resolution courses, students are provided the necessary legal knowledge and practical skills training to competently and expertly represent clients in each of the dispute resolution procedures which are utilized in the legal system today.

Currently, the following ADR courses are offered:

  • Alternative Dispute Resolution
  • Arbitration Law & Practice
  • Collaborative Family Law (2-day intersession with lawyers)
  • Mediation Clinic
  • Mediation Practice* (5-day intensive mediation training with lawyers)
  • Mediation Theory and Practice*
  • Negotiation
  • Trends in ADR and Litigation Seminar

Students can obtain a 40-hour mediation certificate by completing one of the following:

  1. 3-credit Mediation Theory and Practice class during fall/spring; or
  2. Mediation Practice

*Please note that you may not take both mediation classes since they are nearly identical. The major differences are that Mediation Practice meets over five intensive days, is 2 credits rather than 3, and is pass/fail.
