Harvard Negotiation and Mediation Clinical Program (HNMCP)

The Harvard Negotiation and Mediation Clinical Program (HNMCP) is a co-sponsor of the Dispute Systems Design Symposium. The clinic offers students hands-on opportunities to hone interpersonal skills, client counseling capability, and professional ethics.  Over the course of one or more semesters, students working with HNMCP partner with client organizations to help them work through the dynamics of a conflict to devise systems to better manage disputes as they arise.  Past partners with whom students have worked include government agencies such as the U.S. State Department and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), major corporations, non profit organizations, community groups, religious communities, and hospitals.

If you or your organization is involved in a conflict situation that you cannot easily resolve and for which you could use some advice, if you find that your organization could use an evaluation of its internal dispute resolution procedures, or if you are preparing for a complicated series of upcoming negotiations and could benefit from a sophisticated conflict assessment in advance of those discussions, we’d like to hear from you!
