This course is designed to help students develop an understanding of the practice of facilitation in the legal context and to develop skills as facilitators.

Common examples include: planning complex legal strategies, developing firm policies, coordinating work among attorneys and staff, working with corporations or other multi-person clients, shareholder meetings, public commissions and councils, corporate and non-profit Board of Directors meetings.

This course will help students improve the quality of both the processes and products of meetings, as a facilitator, leader or meeting participant.
