The Harvard Negotiation & Mediation Clinical Program (HNMCP) is pleased to welcome Jamie SaintPaul to its staff. SaintPaul has been appointed to the role of Clinical Fellow at HNMCP, where she will work closely with students, supervising the student practice group HLS Negotiators and the Harvard Negotiation Law Review. She will also assist the Director on course preparation and special projects.
Prior to joining HNMCP, SaintPaul was a trial attorney at a national insurance company where she negotiated settlements and represented clients at various court proceedings and arbitrations. She is a trained mediator, having worked in the Connecticut courts as a housing mediator. During and after her time in law school, she assisted in the development and management of mediation projects—including externing with the Quinnipiac University Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities Mediation Project (now the “Mediation Clinic”) and serving as the inaugural Mediation Fellow at Quinnipiac Law’s Homelessness Mitigation Mediation Project. Jamie is a member of the Connecticut Bar.
“I am truly grateful for this amazing opportunity to join the HNMCP team,” says SaintPaul. “The work everyone here does is inspiring and it’s an honor to learn from them every day. I look forward to contributing to the team in any way that I can to help students gain meaningful negotiation, mediation, and other conflict resolution skills.”
SaintPaul holds a B.A. in Legal Studies from Quinnipiac University and a J.D. with a concentration with honors in Civil Advocacy & Dispute Resolution and Workplace Law from Quinnipiac Law. She is currently pursuing her LL.M. in Dispute Resolution at Pepperdine University’s Caruso School of Law.
“Jamie’s rich experience in mediation, negotiation, and client work, combined with her skilled mentorship, guidance and hands-on support to our students, have made her an invaluable member of our team even in the short time she’s spent with us,” notes HNMCP Director Rachel Viscomi. “Her warmth, passion, and dedication to this field inspire our team and students to approach our work with renewed vigor and fresh perspectives.”
