Skill-Building Clinics

Negotiation Strategies Clinic

Our annual interactive clinic was hosted in-person on Friday, September 17 with CTL Director Rachel Milner Gillers. We hosted graduate students across degree programs where learned a framework for negotiation analysis and hone skills through a series of fast-paced exercises and simulations. Additionally, students had the opportunity through the clinic to learn and apply a framework useful in contexts from salary negotiations to nuclear arms treaties.
