Students will visit the Pepperdine Law campus twice during each program for immersive residency courses. During each weekend residency, students will put into practice what they are learning in class and network with faculty and fellow classmates. Each residency is considered a one-unit course and will be offered at various times throughout the year.

Students enrolled in the online Master of Dispute Resolution program will participate in hands-on practical training and simulations in order to experience firsthand how professionals resolve complex conflicts, navigate complex business transactions, and develop a deeper understanding of negotiation, mediation, and arbitration.
Master of Legal Studies Residencies
Students enrolled in the online Master of Legal Studies program will engage with case studies, live role playing, mock mediations, and mock trials to demonstrate how mediators, lawyers, and clients work together to resolve controversies and solve legal problems.
