Seminar Guide - Advanced Negotiations

This research guide was created for the students in Professor Reilly's Advanced Negotiations seminar

Introduction to Advanced Negotiations Research

According to Black's Law Dictionary, negotiation is defined as, "A consensual bargaining process in which the parties attempt to reach agreement on a disputed or potentially disputed matter.  Negotiation usually involves complete autonomy for the parties involved, without the intervention of third parties."

Negotiation is just one methodology that is part of a broader system of methodologies of Alternative Dispute Resolutions.  Parties who engage in negotiation meet in good faith to discuss their dispute with the goal of coming to a mutually agreeable resolution. Negotiation can take place with or without a lawyer.

This research guide was created for this advanced negotiation class. The guide provides information about, and where possible, links to popular and heavily-cited dispute resolution resources.  This guide is not intended to be exhaustive.
