LL.M. Dispute Resolution Specialization

Opportunities for international students to experience CNDR's award winning dispute resolution programs.

The Center for Negotiation and Dispute Resolution (CNDR)  works with Global Programs to provide the Dispute Resolution and Legal Process LL.M. Specialization for foreign students.

Required Courses

LL.M students are required take either:

  • Negotiation & Settlement (3 units) OR
  • Negotiation & Mediation: Process & Practice (4 units)

Both of these courses provide theoretical background to Alternative Dispute Resolution, with multiple opportunities for interactive learning through role plays, discussions, video presentations and writing assignments. It is recommended that LL.M. students enroll in one of these courses their first semester at Hastings, as they are the prerequisite for many of our elective and advanced courses.

LL.M students must take a total of 12 credits for the completion of the specialization.
