Four Students Achieve Certificate in Dispute Resolution

Four students—Joseph Clark III, Noura Dabdoub, Anne C. Evans, and Daniel Lynch—received the Moritz College of Law Certificate in Dispute Resolution in 2011. The Certificate in Dispute Resolution is a way for students interested in dispute resolution to distinguish themselves as knowledgeable in alternative dispute resolution theory and practice in the legal world. Students who complete the requirements for the certificate are honored by the College of Law with a special notation on their transcript as well as a separate document, which certifies the student as having advanced knowledge and practical experience in the field of dispute resolution.

“These students should be very proud of this accomplishment,” said Professor Sarah Cole, Director of the Program on Dispute Resolution. “Students who earn this certificate must be very committed to the study of dispute resolution.”

To receive the Certificate, students must earn 15 course credits at the College of Law related to dispute resolution and successfully complete a 112 hour externship requirement. As part of the course requirement, a student must take either the Mediation Practicum or the Multiparty Mediation Practicum. The student must also earn credit in an approved dispute resolution seminar in which the student completes a substantial and high quality scholarly paper in the dispute resolution field.

Students earn externship hours by resolving disputes, learning about different dispute resolution processes, teaching about dispute resolution, or conducting research and consultation in dispute resolution. The 112 hours may be completed through a single placement or through a series of activities during the summers and/or the student’s career at the College of Law. A student receives externship hour credit when the student gains practical experience in the dispute resolution field outside the classroom setting. Students may receive credit for externship hours while performing paid activities.

Students interested in the Certificate should see the web site or contact the Langdon Fellow in Dispute Resolution, Rishi Batra, for more information.
