The recently formed Negotiation Committee, now co-chaired by Norman
Solovay and Peter Bernbaum, intends to reach out to
include more law students and newly admitted lawyers while continuing to utilize
interactive role playing and other techniques to demonstrate how to conduct
negotiations and how to avoid ethical and other problems and issues that can
arise in them. We have also already begun to expand our Committee’s focus on
keeping members of our Section and others up to date on the stream of new
information and discoveries that are altering prior assumptions about best
negotiation practices. As one example, after arranging for the publication in
the New York Dispute Resolution Lawyer of an article on
neuroscience we are attempting to arrange for its co-author, a leading author
and trainer on the subject, to present a program on how best to adapt and
utilize some of the astonishing game-changing discoveries now constantly being
made in this field.
In addition to those interested in neuroscience, the subject of negotiation
continues to attract the attention of many other skilled writers and teachers
and we anticipate being able to organize a number of other programs featuring
some of their experience and new insights as well as those of some of the
outstanding members of our Committee.
We not only are open to further suggestions from our fellow section members
but will be most appreciative of them.
Join the Committee
