One of a lawyer’s primary tasks is to resolve disputes. Most controversies are never decided by a court, but instead are settled by agreement. The ability to negotiate and mediate effectively is thus crucial for litigators as well as lawyers practicing in other contexts. This course focuses on the processes of negotiation and mediation, and to a lesser degree on arbitration and dispute resolution design. It uses a mixture of lecture, discussion, role-playing and video to give students an introduction to the theory and practice of ADR, including how to use such processes effectively on behalf of a client. There will be a final examination, as well as short writing assignments and in-class exercises. Enrollment may be limited. Students may not enroll in both Alternative Dispute Resolution and Negotiation or Negotiation for Lawyers. (Fall: Tuesday and Thursday 10:00-11:25 a.m.; Spring: Tuesday/Thursday, 6:00 – 7:25 p.m.)
