About the Professional Skills Program
Due to concerns of the COVID-19 virus and the uncertainty of future restrictions, Straus Institute has decided to offer this program online. Our priority for the Professional Skills Program is for the health and well-being of our participants and visiting faculty.
In June 2019 the 32nd Annual Professional Skills Program had over 260 participants from 22 states and 5 foreign countries! Register early for 2020 as online classes will have limited enrollment.
Featuring a panel of nationally recognized experts in dispute resolution, this comprehensive program provides three days of unique educational opportunities for practicing professionals. Contact Lori Rushford at 310.506.6342 or e-mail Lori.Rushford@pepperdine.edu to enroll or to request a brochure.
Participants select the process in which they desire expertise (one course only), as all programs will be presented simultaneously. To provide for personalized instruction, enrollment for each course is limited to ensure a close working relationship among the faculty and participants. Course sessions will include lectures, small group discussions, and practice exercises. Faculty and other participants will also provide performance coaching. The synergy of ideas will provide a truly unique learning experience.
What remains the same:
- Same quality MCLE offering
- Same or comparable faculty
- Same on the ground syllabus and materials for the program
In looking for the positive for this change in venue, please consider:
Training in the comfort of your home or office,
No travel time and expenses, and
Take advantage of your "shelter-in-place" time by learning dispute resolution skills.
We hope that you will join us in this exciting, new, and informative learning experience delivered with the high standards we have always offered.
