Meeting December 1st
Our Speaker on Thursday 1st December was Claire Jones who is a practising lawyer. Her topic was “Mediation the Harvard Way”. Claire had just been to the Cambridge Massachusetts with her husband and baby daughter. She took part in a course on mediation at Harvard University, that was attended from people from around the world and not just lawyers. There were also quite a number of people from Sales who also took the course. The course was a mixture of theory and hands on practise with different scenarios to act out. Claire gave us a potted version and the lawyers present had many comments and questions. Now when we have a conflict to resolve we will be thinking BATNA.
