The members of the Harvard faculty offer popular, week-long workshops in negotiation and mediation through the Harvard Negotiation Institute. These workshops are held each June, and a mediation workshop is also held in the fall. Workshops meet Monday through Friday, roughly 9AM to 5PM, on the Harvard Law School campus.
The Harvard Negotiation Institute five-day programs and the two-day intensive program focus on critical aspects of negotiation and mediation and are eligible for continuing legal education credits (CLEs). From structuring high-stakes deals and mediating complex disputes to resolving intractable problems and strengthening difficult relationships, the Harvard Negotiation Institute courses are the perfect choice for those who can devote two, five, or tens days to intensive study.
The workshops are open to lawyers and others seeking comprehensive learning in negotiation and mediation. Participants from a wide variety of professions have found these programs invaluable.
