Dispute Resolution Team – General
The Dispute Resolution Team is a student-run co-curricular program that represents the Law School in local, regional, and national lawyering skills competitions. Competitors gain experience in client interviewing and counseling, negotiation, mediation, and arbitration in a wide variety of subject areas. Students gain membership to the Team by successfully competing in the school’s Intramural Negotiation Competition held annually each spring, or through exceptional achievement in a writing competition held in the fall semester. The Dispute Resolution Team’s Executive Board and Faculty Advisor oversee the Team’s activities. Students may earn academic credit through membership and active involvement in Team competitions and training. Students who have completed one semester toward their degree are eligible to compete for membership, but students who are placed in the Comprehensive Curriculum Program may not participate as Team members until their second summer of law school.
