Harvard Law School’s Negotiation & Mediation Clinical Program (HNMCP) founded by Professor Robert Bordone ’97 in 2006, is the first law school-based clinic in the U.S. to focus its work primarily on helping institutions, governments, non-profits, and others design, implement, and evaluation dispute resolution mechanisms.  As part of this work, Harvard Law School students work intensively with clients during the course of a semester. Their work includes conflict/stakeholder assessments, facilitating intense learning conversations, occasional mediations, as well as consensus building work. The projects in which HNMCP students engage span a wide swath of subject matters, are public and private, domestic and international in their scope. During the spring 2009 semester, students worked for clients ranging from eBay/PayPal, to the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts, to the Natural Resources Defense Council.

As the fall term approaches, Clinical Director Prof. Bordone is pleased that students will be working on projects with local and federal government agencies, church groups, and major multinational corporations. HNMCP is always interested in identifying new projects for our students and we invite you to review our website to learn more about our program: www.law.harvard.edu/negotiation
