Negotiation, not adjudication, resolves most legal conflicts. However, despite the fact that dispute resolution is central to the practice of law and has become a "hot" topic in legal circles, a gap in the literature persists. "Legal negotiation" — negotiation with lawyers in the middle and legal institutions in the background — has escaped systematic analysis.

The Harvard Negotiation Law Review works to close this gap by providing a forum in which scholars from many disciplines can discuss negotiation as it relates to law and legal institutions. Unlike Negotiation Journal, which has a general audience of negotiation scholars and practitioners, the Harvard Negotiation Law Review is aimed specifically at lawyers and legal scholars. The premier issue (spring 1996) explored interdisciplinary academic perspectives on such topics as decision analysis, litigation settlement, and the variety of mediator roles, strategies and tactics. Subsequent volumes have expanded on these topics, and included additional discussion of the lawyer's role as a problem solver, reconsideration of legal education in light of negotiation, and a range of case studies of innovative negotiation and mediation systems around the world.

All submissions are reviewed by the board of the Harvard Negotiation Law Review in a process that focuses on the individual article's contribution to the existing negotiation literature. The advisors to the Harvard Negotiation Law Review, Robert H. Mnookin, Samuel Williston Professor of Law at Harvard Law School and chair of the Program on Negotiation Steering Committee and Frank E.A. Sander, Bussey Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, provide valuable input, with additional assistance from Robert C. Bordone, Thaddeus R. Beal Lecturer on Law at Harvard Law School and Roger Fisher, Williston Professor of Law emeritus at Harvard Law School and director of the Harvard Negotiation Project.
