The Pepperdine Dispute Resolution Law Journal (DRLJ) is one of Pepperdine Caruso School of Law’s specialized law journals, associated with the top-ranked and internationally recognized Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution.

DRLJ invites submissions of articles, case comments, legislative comments, and book reviews that promote meaningful discourse on contemporary legal issues surrounding ADR from legal scholars, practitioners, academics, and students.
