Certificate in Advocacy & Dispute Resolution

The certificate program is designed to provide students with real-world skills needed to avoid or end legal conflicts. In addition, the program provides students with curricular opportunities to develop the skills that they will need to advocate on behalf of clients both inside and outside of court. 

Admission to the Program

All students are eligible to apply for the program. Students must submit an online application. In that application, students must attest to their academic good standing (i.e. cumulative GPA above 2.30), and provide a 250-word personal statement explaining why they wish to pursue the certificate. The director of the program reserves the discretion to cap the size of the program, based on advising capacity and capstone course availability. Please contact the Program Director, Professor Susan Cook, for further information.
