Welcome! On behalf of the Harvard Negotiation Institute faculty and staff, thank you for your interest in the fall Mediating Disputes course.

Please note that acceptance to the course is dependent upon an assessment of each applicant's English proficiency and the availability of a seat in this limited capacity course.

This program will provide you with core mediation skills training and hands-on experience as a mediator in a variety of simulations. You will examine the mediation process through the lens of both caucus and non-caucus models of practice, and consider the role of law, as well as interest based bargaining, in shaping mediated settlements. In addition, the course addresses legal and ethical issues in mediation, and the psychological dimensions of the mediation process.
