Negotiation & Dispute Resolution



This course introduces students to the theory and practice of negotiation and dispute resolution. Through weekly reading, lectures, and class discussions, students will gain a solid foundation in negotiation principles and techniques developed by leading negotiation experts, as well as the ethical and practical issues that arise when lawyers negotiate on behalf of their clients. Students will have the opportunity to apply these techniques - and develop their own negotiation methods - through a series of intensive negotiation exercises focused on a range of legal and practical issues.
