September 12, 2016 — As we begin a new academic year, Straus is pleased to welcome a large and very diverse group of students into their dispute resolution program. This year’s LLM group includes 40 new students, and the class represents students from the following countries: Brazil, China, Cyprus, Ecuador, Egypt, Germany, India, Iran, Kuwait, Malaysia, Nigeria, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Spain, Thailand, UAE, Uganda, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Vietnam, and the USA.
In addition to our new LLM students, Straus is also excited to have a vibrant new group of MDR and Certificate students. Many of these new students are simultaneously earning a JD, Masters in Public Policy or MBA degree adding to the diversity of dispute resolution students in our classrooms that is unique to Pepperdine. Last, but definitely not least, we welcomed 66 new students into our undergraduate Certificate in Conflict Management.
We are thrilled to have such an amazing group of new students and look forward to another exciting and productive year ahead of us.
