"I got my ADR (recently renamed to CR) certification from UNTHPS. I am currently in law school at OCU Law and the courses have really helped me thus far in law school. We are currently learning about mediation in Civil Procedure and have conducted a couple of negotiations in some of my classes. The material I was taught by Principal Lecturer Leslie Roberts has been very helpful in my study of law. Many of the things she taught me have been in line with my law school curriculum. I couldn't help but let her know how thankful I am for taking her classes and how I have been able to use many of the skills I have learned from her in my studies."- Pearce Pittman
