Negotiation and Conflict Resolution Clinic

Law 788R §01. Negotiation & Conflict Resolution Clinic (2.0 hours)

The Negotiation and Conflict Resolution Clinic will provide students with instruction, training and live-client experience to develop skills in negotiation, especially as applied to conflict management and dispute systems design. The Clinic will focus on providing the following services to clients: (1) Negotiation training. By training clients in negotiation, students will learn how to assist clients in more effectively resolving disputes, and in that process become more effective negotiators themselves. (2) Dispute systems design. Lawyers are often asked to design conflict management systems that support (or replace) an organization’s existing legal structure. Students will gain firsthand experience in assessing, designing, and helping clients implement systems to manage conflict more efficiently and effectively.
