On November 5th, 2016, we will host a gala event to mark the 10th anniversary of the Harvard Negotiation and Mediation Clinical Program. The event will bring together students, faculty, clients, dispute resolution practitioners and others to celebrate the first decade of the HNMCP’s work and to lay the groundwork for the second.
The events of the day will kick off with an introduction by HNMCP Director, Professor Bob Bordone and Harvard Law School Dean Martha Minow. We will offer two panel discussions in the morning. The first, Dispute Systems Design: Expanding Horizons, will bring together Professor Joseph Stulberg, Stacie Smith, Stephan Sonnenberg ’06, and Seanan Fong HDS’16, to discuss the ways in which dispute systems design principles are being used outside of the traditional organizational context. The second panel, Political Dialogue: Promise and Perils of Facilitation, will focus on the role of facilitated dialogue in bringing people together across ideological divides. Heather Scheiwe Kulp, Suzanne Ghais, Liz Joyner, Fr. Josh Thomas and Toby Berkman ’10 will share their thoughts with the audience.
