You want a unique and interactive learning experience that balances theory and practice, and you want to get away from the daily grind, step back and think critically about how you facilitate negotiations and resolve conflict. 

Choosing Osgoode’s LLM in Dispute Resolution will give you the chance to remove yourself from the existing limitations of traditional conflict resolution processes and explore new approaches to resolving disputes. You’ll examine the underlying causes of conflict among people and organizations, methods available to resolve conflict, learn to function more effectively as a conflict resolution representative or neutral, and elevate your analysis, problem-solving and negotiation skills.

This two-year, part-time degree requires completion of 36 credits obtained through coursework and a Major Research Paper, or through coursework only. Your progress and performance is evaluated through short papers, presentations and take-home assignments.

 You’ll take courses in a series of intensive courses (typically four and a half consecutive days including one Saturday) to minimize your time away from other commitments. Classes must be attended in-person in Toronto.
