This practicum is designed for students with grounding in negotiation analysis (see prerequisites below). The purpose of the course is to provide students an opportunity to engage with negotiation and conflict management professionals and to apply their training to real-world practical problems. A professional federal mediator will run the practicum. Other professionals will visit the seminar as guest lecturers to illuminate practical applications of negotiation and conflict management skills and analytic concepts. Over the semester, students will develop a client-oriented research project applying their academic training to contemporary challenges in negotiation or conflict management (e.g., deal making, online dispute resolution, negotiated rule making, stakeholder management). Prerequisite: MLD-220M, MLD-222M, or MLD-224; also open to students who are concurrently enrolled in MLD-222M or MLD-225.

Students with comparable training may seek admission with permission of the instructor.
