LAW 363 v01: Conflict Management Systems Design Seminar
Conflict Management Systems Design Seminar
F 1:15pm-5:30pm, SaSu 9:00am-6:30pm
1/29-1/31, 2/13-2/14
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. Enrolled students must be in attendance at the start of the first class session in order to remain enrolled. Waitlisted students must be in attendance at the start of the first class session in order to remain eligible to be admitted off the waitlist. All enrolled students must attend each class session in its entirety. Failure to attend the first class session in its entirety will result in a drop; failure to attend any subsequent class session in its entirety will result in a withdrawal.

Enrolled students will have until the beginning of the second class session to request a drop by contacting the Office of the Registrar; a student who no longer wishes to remain enrolled after the second class session begins will not be permitted to drop the class but may request a withdrawal from an academic advisor in the Office of Academic Affairs. 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?
