For Clients

We serve client organizations like yours—corporations, non-profits, government agencies, community groups—facing real world challenges that would benefit from strategic negotiation and conflict management advice, or dispute resolution system evaluation and design. A team of our students, trained in both the theory and practice of dispute resolution, will spend a semester exercising their skills and knowledge on behalf of your organization and receive academic course credit for their work.
