University of Missouri-Columbia School of Law accepting applications for LLM program in dispute resolutionNever mind tort reform. Train lawyers in alternative dispute resolution.

A good starting place is the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Law, which is still accepting applications for its one-year residential Master of Laws in Dispute Resolution.

According to John Lande, Associate Professor and Director of the LL.M. Program, applicants submitting complete files by March 15 receive decisions in April; applications received after March 15 will be reviewed on a rolling basis.

The student body is a diverse one--to get a sense of the students who enroll, L.L.M. student biographies can be viewed here. Admissions information, course descriptions, faculty bios, and information on careers related to dispute resolution are all available at the School of Law web site.

Law bloggers may be interested to hear that law students can obtain dual degrees from the University of Missouri's Journalism School (M.A. or Ph.D.). For information on these dual degree programs, contact Professor Richard Reuben.
