2012 Fisher-Sander Prize Winner


Congratulations to Grant Strother ’12, who at Commencement this May was awarded the 2012 Fisher-Sander Prize for his paper titled “Resolving Cultural Property Disputes in the Shadow of the Law”. Grant is now working for Davis Polk and Wardwell in California. He served as a TA for the Spring Negotiation Workshop and as co-chair of the Harvard Negotiators, a student organization that provides law students with opportunities to become actively involved in the field of negotiation and dispute resolution while working with clients in the “real” world.

The Fisher-Sander Prize was established in 2007 by the Program on Negotiation in honor of Professors Roger Fisher, the Williston Professor of Law Emeritus, and Frank E. A. Sander, the Bussey Professor of Law Emeritus, two founders of the Program on Negotiation and leaders in the field of negotiation and conflict management. This prize may be awarded annually to the best student paper on a topic related to negotiation, dispute systems design, mediation, dispute resolution, or ADR. Professional school students currently enrolled in a PON-affiliated degree-granting program at Harvard, MIT, or the Fletcher School at Tufts are eligible for the prize. The amount of the prize is $1,000. Grant’s name will be engraved on a wall plaque to be displayed at the Program on Negotiation.
