General Announcements
Malibu, CA - The Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution at Pepperdine University School of Law has partnered with the JAMS Foundation’s Weinstein International Fellowship program to provide scholarships to international students pursuing advanced degrees in dispute resolution. The Fellowship program provides opportunities for qualified individuals from outside the U.S. to study dispute resolution practices in the U.S. in order to advance the development of dispute resolution systems in their home countries.

For this inaugural year of the Weinstein Fellowship program, Pepperdine is hosting three of this year’s Weinstein Fellowship recipients: Badri Bandari from Nepal, Ximena Bustamante from Ecuador, and Orouba Qarain from Jordan.
