Collaborative Practice Training

Collaborative Practice Training

The Law Society of South Australia is conducting both an Interest-Based Negotiation Workshop presented by Tania Sourdin and a Collaborative Law Workshop presented by Catherine Gale and Tania Sourdin from Thursday 15 April to Saturday 17 April 2010
This Interest-Based Negotiation Workshop has been developed to focus on negotiating legal, personal and professional disputes. The workshop will provide:
• A model for preparation building on the Harvard 7 Elements approach
• A review of communication skills and essential approaches in constructive negotiation
• Strategies and approaches to apply in complex and more simple negotiations
It builds on materials developed by international theorists and practitioners particularly in relation to identification and management of underlying interests.
Further issues, such as conflict escalation, competitive versus cooperative approaches, and dealing with ‘difficult people’ also will be covered.
Attendees will explore negotiation as an adjunct to litigation and alternative dispute resolution processes, in contract formation and within organisations.
With an emphasis on practical skills, participants are given the opportunity to practice the theory they’ve learnt by participating in a range of negotiation scenarios.
Negotiators are provided with feedback on their style and overall performance and can focus on the strategies and tactics used in negotiation.
In the Collaborative Law Workshop the issues covered will include:
♦ The Collaborative Approach
♦ The Paradigm Shift
♦ The Collaboration Contract
♦ Advocacy Issues
♦ Working with Other Professionals
♦ Starting a Collaborative Practice

I recommend anybody interested in practicing as a collaborative practitioner get trained using the training being put on by the Law Society. It is impossible to practice collaboratively without proper skills based training.
