In public discourse about essential matters of civic concern, we talk with more skill than we listen. At this event, Danielle Bart and Professor Robert Bordone will discuss the Harvard Negotiation & Mediation Clinical Program’s new initiative to facilitate challenging dialogue across political and identity-based differences, including the initiative’s activities and teaching tools and why its work matters for lawyers and law students now.

James F. Henry was the founder and longtime President of CPR Institute (International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution), a nonprofit program of several hundred corporations, law firms, government attorneys, and academics, whose mission is to develop alternatives to corporate, government, and international litigation. CPR was responsible for the “Corporate Pledge,” which in the mid-1980s committed more than 4,000 companies to consider alternatives to litigation in disputes with other pledge signers. James F. Henry remains one of the most effective and influential leaders in bringing Alternative Dispute Resolution into the mainstream of American legal practice.
