This LLM program was formerly known as Alternative Dispute Resolution.
This highly lauded two-year, part-time Professional LLM program balances theory and practice to create a unique learning experience. Students will have the chance to step outside the existing limitations of traditional conflict resolution processes and explore new approaches to resolving disputes. Students will also explore underlying causes of conflict among people and organizations; examine the methods available to resolve conflicts; learn to function more effectively when resolving conflict as a representative or a neutral; and, improve their analysis, problem-solving and negotiation skills.
The degree requirements will be satisfied upon the completion of 36 credits. There are two options for completing this degree:
Option 1: Coursework and Major Research Paper [36 credits]
Option II: Coursework Only [36 credits]
This cutting-edge and comprehensive LLM combines theory and practice in a series of intensive courses (typically four and a half consecutive days including one Saturday). Lectures are enhanced with class discussion and role-playing scenarios. Classes must be attended in-person in Toronto. All required and elective courses are 6 credits each.
