The Harvard Negotiation & Mediation Clinical Program (HNMCP) is pleased to welcome Oladeji Tiamiyu to its staff.

Tiamiyu has been appointed to the role of Clinical Fellow at HNMCP, where he will work closely with students, supervising the student practice groups HLS Negotiators and the Harvard Negotiation Law Review. He will also assist the Director on course preparation and special projects.

Prior to joining HNMCP, Oladeji was an Online Dispute Resolution Fellow with the Resolution Systems Institute in Chicago, Illinois, where he helped in developing a pilot online dispute resolution program for family law disputes. Oladeji has also worked with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and Constitutional Review Commission in The Gambia. He has experience as a teacher in Reunion Island off the coast of Madagascar and as a community organizer with Organizing for America in Ohio. His research interests include exploring reconciliation initiatives in the aftermath of national crisis, exploring the intersection between technology and dispute resolution, and strengthening best practices for resolving maritime disputes based on the Law of the Sea. Oladeji has been a member of teaching teams for Harvard Law School’s Negotiation Workshop, with an executive-level program at the Harvard Negotiation Institute, and with the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

“It is a true privilege to be joining the incredibly knowledgeable and energetic staff at HNMCP,” says Oladeji. “I know how impactful this space was to me as a law student and so I hope to positively contribute to the experiential learning of other law students.”

Oladeji holds a B.A. in Political Science, magna cum laude, from the University of Toledo, and a J.D. from Harvard Law School.

“We feel wonderfully fortunate to have Oladeji join our team. He is a skilled teacher, a reflective practitioner, a deep listener, and a thoughtful advocate (in the way only a deep listener can be). His warmth, compassion, and commitment to forging meaningful connections will make him a wise guide for our students and an invaluable member of our team,” said HNMCP Director Rachel Viscomi
