As we begin a new academic year, Straus is pleased to welcome 28 new LLM students. This year’s class represents students from the following countries: Afghanistan, Austria, Brazil, China, Germany, India, Latvia, Panama, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, South Korea, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, and the US.
In addition to our new LLM students, Straus is also excited to have a vibrant new group of MDR and Certificate students from Canada, China, India, Saudi Arabia, and the US. 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 40 new students into our undergraduate Certificate in Conflict Management, which is a joint program administered by Straus and Pepperdine’s Seaver College.
We are thrilled to have such an amazing group of new students and look forward to another exciting and productive year ahead of us.
