Omaha, NE (PRWEB) July 25, 2011
U. S. News & World Report ranked Creighton University School of Law among the top tier of more than 200 law schools nationwide offering courses in dispute resolution. The findings were published in the magazine’s 2011 assessment of America’s Best Graduate Schools. Creighton tied at #15 with Stanford University.
Creighton’s dispute resolution program has repeatedly appeared on the U.S. News short list, garnering recognition as one of the premier graduate programs in the field of Negotiation and Dispute Resolution. The U.S. News ranking reflects the school’s achievements and the assessment of academic experts on the quality of faculty, curriculum, research and students.
“Being listed among the top programs in the country by U.S. News & World Report places Creighton in the company of other prestigious institutions and underscores our commitment to the quality, depth and scope of our dispute resolution programs,” says Arthur Pearlstein, Professor of Law and Director of the Werner Institute.
Through the Werner Institute, Creighton is one of a handful of universities offering both a master’s degree and a graduate certificate in dispute resolution. The Institute provides workplace training in conflict management and has pioneered innovative dispute resolution practices across multiple disciplines and industries. The Master of Science and Graduate Certificate in Negotiation and Dispute Resolution attract students in law, labor relations, business, government, the military, health care, relief and peacemaking organizations, insurance, criminal justice, educators and community leaders with their advanced, interdisciplinary curricula.
Creighton’s MS in Negotiation and Dispute Resolution, as well as the Graduate Certificate program, are available to professionals seeking to advance their careers through online courses. These programs are taught by the same highly credentialed faculty members that teach on campus at Creighton University as well as by other leaders in the field around the country. Both the master’s program and the graduate certificate in Negotiation and Dispute Resolution are based on the innovative and collaborative approach developed by Creighton’s Werner Institute.
