Counseling and Negotiation (3)

Students learn how to listen, persuade and meet the emotional and psychological needs, as well as the legal needs, of the persons they meet professionally, frequently in a situation of crisis. Effective interviewing, advising, influencing, negotiating, developing facts and setting fees are discussed and experienced in role-plays and graded exercises. Emphasis is placed on appropriate resort to non-legal remedies. Discussions will focus on moderate-income clients, corporate clients, troubled clients, dishonest clients and dependent clients, among others. Although substantive law is not a significant part of the course, situations presented may involve zoning, domestic relations, criminal law, and consumer protection, among others. The class is presented in an interactive framework.

Although Counseling & Negotiation normally will meet for three hours on Monday evenings 6:30 9:30, on both the curriculum and room schedule Counseling & Negotiation is shown to meet 6:10-9:35 to accommodate those several times during the semester when additional time may be needed for the graded simulations.
