Now as an annual tradition, here’s a reminder of some of my favorite things you might require or recommend that students read as you gear up for the new year.
My short “Letter to Kelly” provides advice for new 1Ls. If you teach a 1L course, you might assign it even though it doesn’t focus on any particular 1L subject.
Along the same lines, but with more substance, My Last Lecture: More Unsolicited Advice for Future and Current Lawyers.
The Definition of Negotiation: A Play in Three Acts by Andrea Kupfer Schneider, Noam Ebner, David Matz, and John Lande. This short article is very thought-provoking and a hoot to read for anyone interested in dispute resolution.
Negotiation is Changing by Noam Ebner. As you may recall, I raved about it. I think that young’uns may particularly appreciate it.
Multi-stage simulations to provide added realism.
Stone Soup assignments to provide even more realism.
Take a look at the DRLE website generally for syllabi and other resources.
Here’s a link to the latest version of the “resource share” compiled by the incomparable Sharon Press and Bobbi McAdoo.
Some Indisputably posts can be great bite-sized reading assignments on points you particularly are interested in. For example, Hiro Aragaki wrote a post summarizing things he particularly wants his students to know about BATNAs, as part of a conversation with Sanda Kaufman and me. You can search the blog for posts on a particular topic by using the search icon in the upper right of the screen.
And don’t forget to encourage students to subscribe to Indisputably if they might be interested in DR.
Are there other things you would add to this list? If so, put them in a comment to this post – and don’t be shy about suggesting something of your own.
