David Batson and
J.D. Seminar 317
| 3 credit hours
Negotiation is a primary activity in the legal profession, whether the attorney is engaged in transactional, litigation, corporate, non-profit, academic or policy work. This skills-based seminar is designed to develop a deep understanding of the theory and practice of negotiation in professional settings. Students will learn through interactive role play simulations, readings and writing. The seminar is highly interactive, therefore to obtain credit for the course attendance at every class session is MANDATORY. Grades will be determined by the quality of class participation, assignments that reflect the preparation for negotiation role play simulations, and a final paper assignment.
The class meets two weekends, Friday through Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., with assignments between class sessions. In Spring 2017, this seminar will meet on 2/10, 2/11, 2/12, 2/24, 2/25, and 2/26.
Students should not make other commitments during the listed weekends as preparation will be necessary during the evenings between class sessions. Given that this condensed class format contains the content of an entire semester class, students should plan time to complete most of the class readings prior to the first class session on February 10, 2017.
Students may not receive credit for both this seminar and the Negotiations and Mediation Seminar or Negotiations and Drafting Seminar.
The class meets two weekends, Friday through Sunday, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. In Spring 2017, this seminar will meet on 2/10, 2/11, 2/12, 2/24, 2/25 and 2/26.
Due to the reliance on role plays, ATTENDANCE IS MANDATORY AT ALL CLASS SESSIONS. All enrolled and waitlisted students must be in attendance at the start of the first class session in order to be eligible for a seat in the class and must attend each class session in its entirety.
There is a course materials fee for this course, which covers outside vendor materials purchased on behalf of all enrolled students (these materials are distributed as part of the course’s in-class assignments and exercises). This fee is posted to your student account in August (for Fall courses) or December (for Spring courses), or as soon as you are enrolled in the course, whichever is later. Students who drop the course will be refunded the amount. Students approved to withdraw will not be refunded.
A student will be permitted to drop a course that meets for the first time after the add/drop period, without a transcript notation, if a student submits a written request to the Office of the Registrar prior to the start of the second class meeting. Withdrawals are permitted up until the last class for this specific course.
