Advocacy Skills Training – Using “Structured Negotiation” As An Alternative to Litigation
Date training recorded: Jan 19, 2017
Trainer(s): Lainey Feingold
Sponsoring Organization(s): Disability Rights Education and Defense Fund (DREDF)
Are you a busy legal services lawyer with a heavy caseload and limited resources, interested in exploring creative new ways to help your clients? “Structured Negotiation” is a way to achieve a win-win resolution of legal claims while avoiding the need for lawsuits. Your clients gain a forum outside the courtroom where stories matter and they can feel heard. Opposing parties gain a way to do the right thing without conceding legal violations. Lainey Feingold is a former DREDF attorney who has practiced “Structured Negotiation” in disability rights cases for twenty years. She is the author of Structured Negotiation, A Winning Alternative to Lawsuits, a practical guide to this unique approach to representation published in 2016 by the American Bar Association. This webinar will introduce you to the nuts-and-bolts of using Structured Negotiation in your own practice—including tips for managing client relationships, communicating with opposing parties, establishing effective ground rules for collaboration, negotiating and monitoring settlement agreements and addressing media issues.
