LLM in ADR?


Anne83
Hey there,

has anyone here done an LLM with a specialization in ADR/ or arbitration? I've looked at the rankings and the universities which offer such programs, but I would like some 'inside' info if possible.

Any infos on Pepperdine, Hamline, Minnesota or any other law school which is supposed to have a good program in that area?

Thank you very much,

Anne

Anne, the only specialization Ive had with ADR is a recent Family and Divorce Disputes Workshop I took with Professor Benjamin Roberts (http://www.rbenjamin.com). Hes with Pepperdine University School. Unfortunately thats the only inside info I havewhich doesnt really answer your question. However, the workshop was really good. In the process I got a certificate (as well as an A). Became better at negotiatingStarted using more open-ended questions etc. Its been no turning back since.

What I will say though is for you to weigh your options. Compare the LLM vs. Certificate in ADR. Both offer different things, it all depends on what your goals are.

In the meantime, the ABA has a directory of Law School Dispute Resolution Courses and Programs. You can get that info here. http://www.abanet.org/dispute/directory.html or http://www.law.uoregon.edu/aba/

Thank you, arnauld and bardiva.

I defintely want to do an LL.M, if possible with a concentration in ADR. So far I was leaning more towards business disputes, but a class or two in Family and Divorce Disputes might be interesting, too.

Thanks for the ABA link, I'll look into that, too.

Maybe, you can check University of Mossouri at Columbia regarding LL.M. in ADR. Their ranking of J.D. is not so high but has such a special LL.M. program.

Thank you! I looked at University of Missouri at Columbia, but I don't think I want to go there, location-wise.

Pepperdine University in Malibu has a LL.M ADR program that is supposed to be pretty good. The J.D. program is not highly ranked, but I have heard nothing but good things about the LL.M. program.

Thanks for your input. I still haven't made up my mind, so this is very helpful. Right now I'm thinking again about getting a general LL.M. at a higher ranked school because that's what seems to count more for employers here.

In the end I suppose I'll apply to both kinds of programs and then decide based on admissions.

Hey,
Do you know what are the best programs for a LLM in ADR?
Are we able to pass the bar with such a LLM or we need to take special courses?
I was also wondering (it is a bit more subjective I guess) if I want to work in the US but not especially as a lawyer but in mediation do you think I have more chance to find a job with a general LLM from a more prestigious law firm or with a LLM in ADR

I thank you in advance for any information you could provide me and Good luck to everyone who is applying already!

P.S :I know the first and second questions have been asked already but it was quite some time ago...
