Announcing the Third Annual Dispute Resolution Works-in-Progress Workshop

The Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School will host the Third Annual Dispute Resolution Works-in-Progress Workshop.

The workshop will be held in Cambridge on Friday, November 13th and Saturday, November 14th until 1:00PM.

For this year’s workshop the Steering Committee includes Andrea Schneider, and Art Hinshaw, each of whom hosted an earlier workshop.

Needless to say, we have an expansive view of dispute resolution and negotiation. We will welcome attendance not simply from law professors and academics in other relevant disciplines but also from working professionals with scholarly interests. So please spread the word to all.

My colleagues and I look forward to seeing you this fall.
