On the Road

On the Road is a column that reflects the various ways in which the HNMCP staff is engaging with the field of alternative dispute resolution outside of the classroom Clinic.
  • Poster for Library Event - February 2014 - smallIn February the Harvard Law School Library hosted a faculty book event to discuss the recent release of “Critical Decisions in Negotiation,” a new 3-DVD set created by Clinic Director Bob Bordone, former HNMCP Associate Toby Berkman ’10, and HNMCP Clinical Instructor Chad Carr.  Prof. Bordone was joined by Mr. Carr and Harvard Business School Professor Michael Wheeler LLM ’74 in a discussion of this teaching tool. The set features lawyers and professionals from the Boston area role-playing an unscripted negotiation, the creation of which was motivated by the desire to provide more demonstrations of negotiations to students.  “Critical Decisions in Negotiation” is available for purchase at The Case Studies website. You can watch the panel on our website.
  • Also in February, Prof. Bordone and Sasha Pippenger ’15 presented a day-long workshop through Harvard’s Center for Workplace Development in the Leadership in Action Program.
  • Over spring break Prof. Bordone delivered a three-day negotiation workshop for Jus in Norway. He has been delivering this training since 2003 with Tristan Jones HKS ’03.
  • In March, Prof. Bordone was invited by Donna Chiozzi, former director of Harvard Law School Alumni Affairs, to give a talk on negotiation principles and common negotiator mistakes to the Harvard University Retiree Association.
  • In June, at the invitation of the Dean of Harvard Law School, Prof. Bordone will be co-presenting to HLS faculty on the topic of race issues and teaching in the classroom.
