Negotiation Workshop Application Procedure
A limited number of LLM students and students registered at other Harvard graduate schools, the Tufts-Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, and MIT-Sloan will be admitted to the winter and the spring Negotiation Workshops.
The Winter 2013 Negotiation Workshop will be taught at Harvard Law School from Monday, January 7, 2013 through Friday, January 25, 2013.
The Spring 2013 Negotiation Workshop will be taught at Harvard Law School from Wednesday, January 30, 2013 through Thursday, April 25, 2013.
Applicants for both courses should know that participation in the Workshop requires that students be highly proficient in English – able to absorb complex factual memoranda quickly, write well under severe time constraints, and participate fully and clearly in all negotiation exercises.
Both Negotiation Workshops are demanding courses requiring full participation during the course period. Note especially in making travel plans that students not present at the beginning of the course (9:00 a.m. on January 7, 2013 for the Winter Workshop and 3:10 p.m. on January 30, 2013 for the Spring Workshop) will be dropped from the course immediately and replaced by a student on the wait list.
You may apply online for admission to the Winter and/or the Spring Negotiation Workshop by filling out our online application form and submitting your resume along with a letter describing your background by noon on Monday, October 15, 2012. Your full application package with resume and letter must be received by this date.
You will receive an email from the Workshop Coordinator within 3 business days confirming receipt of your application. If you do not receive a confirmation email please notify Jessica MacDonald.
To increase your chances of being admitted to one of these workshops, we suggest you apply to both workshops, indicating any preference you may have between the two.
Your application letter should tell us succinctly who you are, why you want to take the Workshop, what experiences you have had that may enrich the Workshop for others, how the Workshop fits into your broader academic or career goals, and any other information you deem relevant and persuasive.
As indicated in the winter and spring course descriptions, the Workshops will be jointly taught by a team of instructors, each of whom will be responsible with the help of a teaching assistant for a working group of 24 students. The Workshops will be taught as a unified course, and admitted students will be assigned to a specific working group, using diversity as a primary consideration.
