Class Unique: 28165

Negotiation is the pathway to agreement. Much of what lawyers do involves negotiation -- the structured process of communicating toward an agreement. This is an "audience participation," experiential learning course that blends law, social science, and ethics toward the development of practice skills. Topics covered will include both transaction and legal claim negotiations.  The class is structured to include both classroom presentation, and exercises that will be performed in small groups under the instruction of adjunct professors.
