Pepperdine University School of Law has gathered a panel of nationally recognized experts for the 22nd Annual Summer Professional Skills Program in Dispute Resolution. The three-day event begins Thursday, June 11, and continues through Saturday, June 13.

Hosted by Pepperdine's internationally renowned Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution, the three-day event on the Malibu campus encompasses a comprehensive program of educational opportunities for practicing professionals.

A choice of 11 courses await participants covering a variety of topics including, but not limited to, advanced mediation, complex construction disputes, improvisational mediation, ombudsman 101, and how neuroscience can enhance collaborative conflict resolution skills. Visit the Straus Web site for a full list of courses and faculty.

Participants will network with nationally prominent faculty, as well as participants from the other specialties at plenary sessions, lunches, and receptions. Faculty and other participants will also provide performance coaching at an event that will provide a truly unique learning experience.

The Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution was recently ranked the number one dispute resolution program for the fifth consecutive year by the U.S. News and World Report. Last year's annual program drew over 250 participants from 30 states and six foreign countries.
