The Frank Evans Center for Conflict Resolution

As the practice of law evolves, attorneys spend considerably much more time in negotiations, mediations, and arbitrations than in the courtroom. As a result, it is critical that law students possess effective skills in these contemporary methods of legal representation.

The Frank Evans Center for Conflict Resolution (FECCR) serves as the focal point for dispute resolution education within South Texas College of Law. The FECCR has as its primary mission the education of law students in both the theoretical foundations and practical applications of dispute resolution policies and procedures. The FECCR sponsors and administers a variety of programs and projects, including classes, trainings, clinical opportunities, externships, and dispute resolution competitions. Currently, South Texas College of Law offers eight ADR-related courses, including a mediation clinic and a 40-hour basic mediation training which is open to both students and professionals. In addition, the FECCR sponsors teams for eight national and international ADR competitions annually with the concentration and focus on representing clients in a variety of dispute resolution processes. In the last several years, the FECCR and South Texas College of Law have achieved recognition by winning a number of national and international dispute resolution competitions. According to PreLaw Magazine, a National Jurist publication, South Texas College of Law is ranked one of the top law schools for ADR.
