The Cardozo Journal of Conflict Resolution (CJCR) is the country’s preeminent legal journal of arbitration, negotiation, mediation, settlement, and restorative justice. We are one of the most heavily-cited legal publications in the broad field of “Civil Litigation and Dispute Resolution,” ranked as seventh internationally in 2014. The Journal is affiliated with Cardozo Law School’s Kukin Program for Conflict Resolution, which is itself ranked as one of the top ten dispute resolution programs in the country. Edited by third-year law students and staffed by second-year law students, the Journal publishes on issues at the cutting edge of legal and academic thought. We publish three issues annually: Fall, Winter, and Spring.

In addition, the Journal hosts an annual Symposium on an important and timely topic in dispute resolution. Our symposia bring together top national and international scholars, practitioners, and policymakers. We also host other events throughout the year, offering Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit for attendance.

Each year, the Journal presents the International Advocate for Peace (IAP) Award to an individual who is exemplary in the field of global conflict resolution. Past recipients have included pathbreaking figures such as President Bill Clinton, diplomat Richard Holbrooke, Archbishop Desmond M. Tutu, economist Jeffrey Sachs, and filmmaker Abigail Disney. The presentation of the IAP Award is always one of the most anticipated moments of the academic year at Cardozo and for New York’s broader dispute resolution community.
