Oregon Law’s Appropriate Dispute Resolution (ADR) Program is #11 in the nation, according to US News & World Report. 

For more than 17 years, Oregon Law has been a top-ranked school for its dispute resolution program, which is the only one of its kind in the Pacific Northwest. 

“Our students learn how to manage complex interactions through negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and a host of hybrids and other approaches,” Professor Jennifer Reynolds, the ADR Program Director, said.  “In addition, our recent faculty work focuses on cutting edge areas for alternative practice—schools, the workplace, the public square, and the criminal justice system.”

Oregon Law’s ADR Program continues its long tradition – begun in 2000 – of preparing students for real-world legal practice.
