Description

Seated in my negotiations class, explaining the interests of “my client,” and trying to get my head around those of my opponent’s in a role-play scenario we have been assigned, it is refreshing to practise a skill in law school that is relevant to the practice of law. I feel my toe tapping, signaling my interest at the ensuing back and forth. As I keep one eye on the elements of the negotiation and another on the process, I imagine myself one day applying these skills on behalf of a client.
