About DRS

The Alternative Dispute Resolution Society is a law school organization that seeks to help law students develop their skills in an increasingly common aspect of the legal profession: alternative (non-litigation) means of dispute resolution. To do so, we hold simulation negotiation and client counseling competitions as well as lectures regarding alternative means of dispute resolution. Members of the organization have the chance to participate and attend school, regional, and national competitions throughout the year. These competitions are sponsored by the Law Student Division of the American Bar Association. The Negotiation competition is held in the fall, and the Client Counseling competition is held in the spring.
