Center for Dispute Resolution

As an alternative to litigation, a negotiated or mediated decision often provides a more humane and less costly solution to many issues previously decided through the courts. The Center for Dispute Resolution of the Willamette College of Law provides one of the few programs in the country focusing on dispute resolution as an alternate means for resolving conflicts. While some of the coursework offered by the Center is required for students at the College of Law, much of it is elective. The Center also offers a certificate program for students interested exclusively in dispute resolution. For specific information about admission, curriculum and other requirements, interested students should contact the Center for Dispute Resolution, College of Law, Willamette University, Salem, OR 97301. A limited number of nonlaw students may be accepted to this program each year. (The course of study is also available to a limited number of law students.)
