Conflict and Dispute Resolution and Law (J.D./M.S. or M.A.)

Doctor of Jurisprudence/Master of Science or Master of Arts


The law school's Appropriate Dispute Resolution Center houses a two-year Master's degree program in Conflict and Dispute Resolution that addresses the wider scope of non-adversarial dispute resolution options and the concepts and skills needed to implement those alternatives. Attaining the two degrees, J.D. and Master's, in four years rather than five, law students deepen their understanding of negotiation, dispute resolution, and alternative methods of settlement.
