LAW 363 v01: Conflict Management Systems Design Seminar
Conflict Management Systems Design Seminar
F 1:15pm-5:30pm; SaSu 9:00am-6:30pm
1/24 to 1/26, 2/8 to 2/9
Paper and Special Requirement


A course on an alternative dispute resolution topic is required (e.g., Negotiations Seminar, Mediation Seminar, Mediation Advocacy Seminar, Negotiations and Mediation Seminar, Multi-Party Dispute Resolution Seminar: Consensus Building and Other Negotiation Processes). The two-credit sections of International Negotiations Seminar do not satisfy the prerequisite for this class.


ATTENDANCE IS MANDATORY AT ALL CLASS SESSIONS. All enrolled and waitlisted students must be in attendance at the start of the first class session in order to be eligible for a seat in the class and must attend each class session in its entirety.

A student will be permitted to drop a course that meets for the first time after the add/drop period, without a transcript notation, if a student submits a written request to the Office of the Registrar prior to the start of the second class meeting. Withdrawals are permitted up until the last class for this specific course.

Would you like to offer the Pass/Fail grading option?

Does this course qualify as a "simulation course"?

Is this course available to distance students?

Is this a mandatory Pass-Fail course?
