Materials for Law Teachers

Over the past 20 years the Dispute Resolution Research Center (DRRC) at Northwestern University has developed a set of exercises to use to teach negotiation and mediation. The exercises are designed to thoroughly engage the students and bring to life key theoretical concepts. The exercises come with extensive teaching notes and a guide for debriefing that not only provides questions to highlight key theoretical concepts, but also outlines the answers to those questions.

DRRC and KTAG exercises are available at new.negotiationexercises.com.
