The DRLJ is one of Pepperdine Caruso School of Law’s specialized law journals, associated with the top-ranked Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution, which focuses on all aspects related to dispute resolution. Whether domestic or international, practical or theoretical, involving negotiation, mediation, or arbitration, in a world with no shortage of conflict, there is a corresponding bounty of scholarship to be done on the subject.

The DRLJ Student Editorial Board strongly encourages interested JD, MDR, LLM, and joint-degree graduate students (JD/MBA, JD/MDR, JD/MPP, MDR/MPP) to participate in the Journal Write-On Competition beginning on May 11, 2022 and to rank DRLJ at the top of their list to maximize chances of admission as a Junior Staffer.

Membership on DRLJ’s staff comes with a series of benefits, including:

  • Credits used for DRLJ may contribute to your Master’s in Dispute Resolution (MDR) or Straus Certificate, as applicable;
  • You can fulfill your Upper-Division Writing Requirement with your student article (minimum 25 pages on a unique topic of interest in the field of dispute resolution law);
  • You can subcheck remotely (DRLJ uses track changes in Word Documents); and
  • DRLJ enjoys a wide breadth of publication (based in large part on its connections to the Straus Institute).

In addition to subchecking and writing their own articles for publication consideration, DRLJ staff also take at least one (1) course with the Straus Institute.

If you’re interested in learning more about DRLJ and the day-to-day work you would do as a Junior Staffer, please feel free to reach out to Patrick Babajanian at patrick.babajanian@pepperdine.edu and Cattarina Sinclaire at cattarina.sinclaire@pepperdine.edu.
