Law Summer Program in Germany (LGER)

LGER 4610  Int'l Negotiation & Mediation  (3)  

The Berlin Summer Program in Intercultural Negotiation and Mediation is a joint venture between Tulane Law School in New Orleans and Humboldt University in Berlin. 2020 marks the 22nd consecutive year that the program is being offered. The four-week curriculum consists of lectures, Q+A sessions and role-play exercises that cover both theory and practice of negotiation and mediation. An experienced team of academic experts and practitioners from the United States, Germany and Israel provides a sound introduction to the principles and techniques of ADR and highlights the special challenges of conflict resolution in an intercultural setting. A special unit will focus on online negotiation. Optional components feature the mediation of political conflicts (post-conflict/peace negotiations and conflicts over employment and pension rights) as well as virtual excursions to Germany and the European Union. Successful participants receive three credits of experiential learning as well as certificates in negotiation and mediation. The entire Program is conducted online via Zoom (Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays). Participants will move from common events (general lectures) to small groups (exercises). The language of instruction is English.
