This program is designed to help you develop practical skills in legal bargaining. To ensure an interactive experience, attendance will be limited to 50 persons. You will participate in hands-on roleplaying, and have the opportunity to request feedback from a faculty of leading academics, attorneys, and trainers.
As a participant you will:
· Spend a full day working to improve your legal bargaining skills
· Participate in negotiations yourself, and be able to analyze the results and see video of skilled bargainers dealing with the same problem
· Explore the psychological forces that often distort bargaining decisions of opponents, clients—and perhaps yourself
· Understand the ethical rules that govern negotiation by lawyers
· Survey your personal bargaining style
· Practice dealing with “tough” bargaining tactics
· Learn how to approach what may be your toughest negotiation – with your own clients
Who should attend?
· Lawyers who want to improve their legal bargaining skills
· Attorneys who handle transactional or litigation matters
· Clients who must deal with legal negotiations
· Professionals who want to receive feedback about their bargaining style
· Lawyers interested in learning more about a skill they use every day
