About the Center for Dispute Resolution

The Center for Dispute Resolution at the University of Maryland School of Law (C-DRUM) promotes the effective resolution of conflict to empower and transform.

An integral part of the law school, C-DRUM is a comprehensive dispute resolution center for policy, scholarship, and professional skill development relating to problem-solving in law and society. C-DRUM’s mission is to collaborate with public and private institutions, groups, and individuals to study, enhance, and teach conflict resolution; to research and develop conflict resolution systems; and to promote effective, ethical dispute resolution in legal education and practice and in society more broadly.

Through the education of law students and provision of conflict resolution services throughout the state of Maryland, C-DRUM furthers the law school's goal of maintaining high academic standards while providing service to the surrounding community.
