CSDR / LL.M. PROGRAM NEWS

LAW SCHOOL AND JOURNALISM SCHOOL FACULTIES APPROVE DUAL DEGREE PROGRAMS
The faculties of the Law School and the Journalism school have approved four dual degree programs: JD/MA, JD/PhD, LL.M./MA, and LL.M./PhD. These dual degree programs allow students to complete two degrees by counting some credits from one degree toward the graduation requirements of the other degree. Thus students who enroll in these degree programs concurrently may be able to complete both degrees in one or two semesters less than if they participated in the degree programs consecutively. Prof. Richard Reuben has been the moving force behind a major collaboration between the two schools resulting in these dual degree programs, among other things.

DANIEL JORDAN ('01) SUBMITTED ADR PROPOSAL TO ADMINISTRATIVE HEARING COMMISSION
Daniel Jordan has submitted a proposal for an ADR program to his employer, the Missouri Administrative Hearing Commission. The proposal is based on his Winter '01 independent research project "The Legal Environment for Alternative Dispute Resolution at the Administrative Hearing Commission," for which Prof. Richard Reuben was the faculty advisor. The Missouri Administrative Hearing Commission is considering a pilot project offering appropriate procedures as alternatives to the contested case procedure now in place.
