"It was a fantastic experience.
The instructors were outstanding, not only in the depth of their knowledge, but also in their practical application of the subject matter. As LLM candidates, the value we brought was in the different experiences we've gone through in the healthcare sector, the legal sector and the public sector. I found that there was a lot of overlap inthe conflict and dispute resolution domain."

"My LLM experience in Dispute Resolution has been extremely validating and rewarding. While getting back into academia has reignited my love of writing and critical thinking, the Dispute Resolution program is also incredibly practical – we did a ton of mediation and negotiation simulations, which enabled us to put the theory into practice and test out various strategies in a meaningful way. It has made me a better litigator, and a better client manager, and most likely, a better boss than I otherwise would have been."

“The [LLM] program confirmed that there are many ways to think about, address and resolve conflict outside of the adversarial process of litigation. The combination of my professional experiences as a crown prosecutor and the theoretical and practical Dispute Resolution courses I took in the LLM helped me become the conflict specialist I am today. For those considering the LLM in Dispute Resolution, this program can act as a career enhancer. The broadly applicable LLM will encourage a paradigm shift in how you assess and approach the various kinds of conflicts you come across within your lives and careers.”
