Certificate Details

Overview

Corporate leaders and attorneys agree that there is a shortage of qualified dispute resolution professionals available to resolve complex commercial, international and employment law disputes. In today's volatile economic climate, attorneys and other professionals are predicting a rise in the use of alternative dispute resolution. In addition to the process and substantive knowledge segments, Cornell's Reinventing Your Career program will devote considerable time in helping participants build a successful practice by creating a personalized strategic business plan.

For the attorney or business executive seeking to reroute a career or return to the workforce after a pause to raise a family, complete military service, or pursue volunteer opportunities, a career in dispute resolution could represent an exciting and viable new direction. In this extraordinary economic environment, dispute resolution can offer personal flexibility and life skills that can be used across multiple disciplines.
