ADR Certificate Program

A law student can earn a certificate in conflict resolution by taking four core dispute resolutions courses and a skills elective. The purpose of the certificate is to improve a student's employment opportunities upon graduation by demonstrating skills training. The Certificate in Dispute Resolution is not a supplemental degree, but an opportunity for students to highlight their knowledge of conflict management principles and dispute resolution processes. There are only a handful of such law school programs in the United States, and this is the first such program in a law school in the southeastern United States.

The ADR certificate requires completion of the following electives:

  • Dispute Resolution Processes
  • Interviewing, Counseling & Negotiation
  • Arbitration
  • Mediation Clinic
  • A skills elective such as Trial Advocacy, Appellate Advocacy, Externship, etc.
