Negotiation is a critical component of any practicing lawyer's daily work. Lawyers negotiate with their clients to develop transactional and litigation strategies, with their adversaries to conclude deals or lawsuits, with courts and governments to secure parameters of proceedings, and with their colleagues to manage their workloads. This course will explore the strategies and tools available to lawyers when negotiating in different forums. Students will learn how to prepare for negotiations, practice various tactics, explore individual and collective bargaining, and use Alternative Dispute Resolution resources. Students will participate in simulated exercises to develop their skills.
