Students in the Master of Laws (LLM) dispute resolution program have a unique opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of theoretical, policy, design and ethical issues in dispute resolution. They study with leading dispute resolution scholars who generate important academic work influencing dispute resolution theory and practice around the world. Small class sizes create a close community with faculty and students.
Our program blends theoretical analysis, practitioner skills, and systems design work. Our diverse student body — by age, race, nationality, legal background — enriches the level of discussion, inside and outside the classroom.
The LLM meets the needs of those with backgrounds as advocates, neutrals, law-trained court administrators and government agency personnel, among others.
LLM students can earn dual degrees (MA and PhD) from the School of Journalism.
Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis as space is available.
