Alternative Dispute Resolution Summer School (22 June - 3 July, 2015)

Course directors:
Lela P. Love, Kukin Program of Conflict Resolution, Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, New York, USA
Sharon B. Press, Hamline University School of Law, St. Paul, USA

Increasingly, around the world, individuals are exploring means of resolving their differences prior to or instead of pursuing traditional court proceedings.  In many jurisdictions, the court may require litigants to attempt to resolve their dispute through an alternative process prior to obtaining access to the court system.  Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is the umbrella term for a wide-range of processes which includes negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and restorative justice.

Mediation Theory and Skills
This intensive one-week course facilitates the exchange of ideas and cooperative projects among mediation scholars, practitioners, trainers, and students in the East and West. In addition to offering an introduction to mediation, the program provides a teaching and training template for mediation training for scholars and practitioners from around the world to adapt for use in their home countries.

International Business Negotiation
This course introduces students to the skills, constraints, and dynamics of the negotiation process in the context of international business transactions. Through readings and highly interactive exercises, students will learn the fundamental skills of systematic and thorough negotiation preparation, the ongoing management of a negotiation process, and the identification and achievement of optimal agreements. Legal and ethical constraints of negotiation will also be considered as students in intentionally diverse teams participate in negotiations typically encountered in the formation of a business. Course content is drawn from the fields of law, psychology, business, and communication.

History has seen several waves of constitution-building in the 20th century with an unparalleled boom starting in the 1990s after the fall of the Berlin wall. And while experts recently announced the end of this boom in new constitutions after the Cold War, the world is witnessing another wave of constitution-building, this time predominately in Africa. This burst of activity has given rise to a range of new ideas about the nature and purpose of constitutions and constitution-making, constitutional solutions to contemporary problems, and the proper role of international actors.
