Dispute Resolution in Practice 1

Dispute Resolution in Practice 1 is an immersive, experiential residency course through which students explore ethics, problem solving, advocacy, and various stages and kinds of dispute resolution. This residency will be focused on the fields of negotiation and mediation. To develop a deeper understanding of negotiation and mediation in practice, students will engage in case studies, live role plays, and mock negotiations and mediations to learn how dispute resolution professionals resolve controversies and complex conflicts.

Students will practice and experience the hands-on practical training that the Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution is known for. Students will get an opportunity to learn from fellow students but also to practice and learn with experienced mediators, negotiators, and legal practitioners, including judges and arbitrators.
