Alternative Dispute Resolution

How did a background in ADR help prepare you to serve as Ohio's Attorney General?

Nancy Rogers"The Ohio Attorney General's Office typically had 35,000 legal matters pending. Like other attorneys, the 400 lawyers in that office regularly employ alternative dispute resolution techniques – which include negotiation, mediation, and arbitration – as counsel in these cases. Lawyers who understand both litigation and dispute resolution processes have an edge in serving clients effectively.

Moritz offers unique opportunities to become a superior dispute resolver. The course offerings typically include a mediation clinic and practical classes in designing dispute resolution systems for clients, international dispute resolution, negotiation and cultural differences, arbitration, ethical issues, dispute resolution in special education, and much more. The breadth and depth of the superb dispute resolution faculty allows students to pursue a Certificate in Dispute Resolution as they secure their J.D."
