Colloquium on Negotiation and Alternative Dispute Resolution

This colloquium provides an opportunity for students to review and comment upon leading scholarship in negotiation and alternative dispute resolution. Students will be encouraged to become informed on diverse scholarship on negotiation and dispute resolution, and to evaluate its contribution to legal practitioners and the legal system. Six leading scholars will present their work during the semester. Students will write 3 page reports for each of the presentations, with a goal toward critical analysis of the scholarship. This course is primarily geared toward students with an interest in bargaining, negotiation, mediation, and arbitration; the course may also be of interest to students with a more general interest in the social sciences (psychology, political science, economics, anthropology and sociology). Fall 2010 topics tentatively include: the extent to which ADR programs are efficient; approaches to intergroup conflict; and negotiation ability as a predictor of outcomes. This course satisfies the Perspective elective requirement.
