Conflict and mediation is an interdisciplinary field that involves certain legal skills and concepts. However, Roosevelt University does not seek or receive approval from the American Bar Association for the Master of Arts in Conflict & Mediation program. Roosevelt’s Paralegal Studies Program is the only program at Roosevelt that is approved by the American Bar Association.
