The Quinnipiac University School of Law's Center on Dispute Resolution was established in 1998 with a mission to integrate the theory and practice of dispute resolution. To achieve this mission, the center brings students, scholars and practitioners together for events and activities that allow these groups to exchange questions, insights and information. Even as the center explores and develops the theory of dispute resolution, it works to insure that Quinnipiac law students gain vital knowledge and skills in this growing field. 

Quinnipiac's dispute resolution program is ranked 12th in the 2013 issue of U.S. News & World Report. Learn more
