About the Professional Skills Program
In June 2017 the 30th Annual Professional Skills Program had over 250 participants from 30 states and 4 foreign countries! Register early for 2018 as some courses will sell out.
Featuring a panel of nationally recognized experts in dispute resolution, this comprehensive program provides two and a half days of unique educational opportunities for practicing professionals. Participants will network with nationally prominent faculty, as well as participants from the other specialties at plenary sessions, lunches, and receptions. Early enrollment is recommended since many of the sessions fully subscribe. 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.
