This seminar is designed to teach students to become better negotiators and to represent clients effectively in both transactional and dispute resolution settings. The structure of the course emphasizes both theoretical and experiential learning. Since negotiation is something you learn by doing, we will engage in hands-on negotiation simulations throughout the course. These simulations are designed to enhance your skills, demonstrate concepts, and provide you with opportunities to experiment with various negotiation techniques. In addition, we will discuss theories of negotiation and use them to analyze the simulated negotiations. As a result, we will move back and forth between theory and practice, applying lessons from theory to our negotiation practice, and drawing lessons from our experience to critique theory.

This course has a required Saturday class on November 16, 2019. Please contact Professor Link for more details and the time of the Saturday class.
