The Civil Advocacy and Dispute Resolution concentration develops your skills as a sharp negotiator and focuses on key areas of litigation, including the rules surrounding evidence, conducting oral arguments and effectively examining witnesses.


You’ll explore alternative methods in mediation to resolve disputes and reach settlements outside of court, saving time and money for your clients and the judicial system. 

Our dispute resolution program was ranked 12th in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. Our Center on Dispute Resolution, the Quinnipiac/Yale Workshop on Dispute Resolution, and our student-run Society for Dispute Resolution are all valuable resources that are at your disposal. The center sponsors a variety of workshops and speaking events and offers you the opportunity to train with professionals in the field. The advocacy element of this concentration hones your litigation skills through regional and national mock trial competitions. 

After two semesters, you’ll have the opportunity to work in one of our legal clinics, where you counsel actual clients and occasionally argue before judges on their behalf. In the clinics and in our diverse externship program, you’ll gain practical experience by shadowing and networking with professionals in the field. You also can earn academic credit by contributing to the Quinnipiac Law Review, the Health Law Journal or the Probate Law Journal.
