On the Road & Publishing

Heather KulpClinical Instructor and Lecturer on Law Heather Kulp will publish an article in the next issue of the Harvard Negotiation Law Review entitled, “Deflategate’s Labor Legacy: The Centrality of Grievance Procedures in Collective Bargaining Negotiations.”

In late September, Kulp presented “Latent Power in Negotiation” at the 10th annual American Association of Law Schools ADR Works-in-Progress Conference at Marquette University Law School.

Kulp also, along with HLS student Lisa Dicker ’17, delivered two trainings this summer to the New Hampshire Superior Court Criminal Bar. The curriculum was developed by Dicker and clinic partner Chrystel Marincich ’16 for a Fall 2015 clinical project supervised by Kulp.

This past summer Bob Bordone and former HNMCP Associate Toby Berkman ’10 offered a workshop at the Harvard Faculty Club to 52 lawyers who traveled from Norway and Denmark.

In August, Bob traveled to Seoul with former HLS Lecturer on Law Florrie Darwin ’84. While there, Bob and Florrie offered a two-day Negotiation Workshop for a major Korean law firm. In addition, Bob delivered an address to the Korean Judiciary and members of the Korean Supreme Court entitled, “Managing Partisan Perceptions in Disputes: Implications for Mediators.” While in Seoul, HNMCP benefactors and HLS alums Jimmy and Inyoung Ahn hosted a dinner party for Harvard Law School alumni living in Seoul.

This fall Bob consulted with the American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) on Anna Deveare Smith’s new play “Notes from the Field: Doing Time in Education.” Deveare Smith’s signature and compelling one woman show outlines the civil rights crisis currently erupting at the intersection between America’s education system and its mass incarceration epidemic. In Act One, Deavere Smith introduces the students, parents, teachers, and administrators caught in America’s school-to-prison “pipeline” through her trademark portrait performances. In the tradition of call and response, the second act, before a final coda performance, invites audiences to reflect on how we might begin to collectively move forward from difficult histories and devastating social policies. Because of several facilitation initiatives and a class Bob has developed at Harvard Law School, the A.R.T. reached out to him to suggest possible facilitators for this second portion of the show, and in the end, asked him to consult on how to how to manage this piece of the evening. On September 10,  Bob was the guest facilitator for Act Two, leading the audience in a structured call-and-response conversation.
