Program Overview

The Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution at Pepperdine University Caruso School of Law is pleased to announce its 25th annual Winter Intensive Dispute Resolution Program. Open to law and dispute resolution students and others interested in professional-level education in conflict management, the program features nationally recognized faculty in the spectacular coastal environment of Pepperdine University in Malibu, California.

The dispute resolution class sessions are condensed into an intensive format to meet the needs of students visiting from distant law schools as well as mid-career professionals desiring an intensive format. Each course will meet on the days and times indicated for each session. These classes are designed to be interactive, fast-paced, and stimulating. The program provides students with opportunities to develop meaningful mentoring relationships with visiting faculty, leading scholars, and practitioners from across the country.

Students successfully completing a dispute resolution course will earn 2 semester credits from Pepperdine University Caruso School of Law, transferable to other law and graduate schools. All Winter Intensive courses are graded using letter grades and conform to Pepperdine's curve requirements.
