The session, entitled "Overcoming the Difficulties of Teaching Negotiation Ethics," focused on the disconnect between the lessons professors want their student to learn on the topic and the message that students receive. Specifically, Hinshaw discussed the results of his work studying the negotiation ethics of practicing attorneys, and Dauber focused on the lawyer-client tensions when discussing settlement proposals.
Most of Dauber's teaching energies are devoted to supervising and instructing student attorneys in the College's Civil Practice Clinic. He also regularly teaches courses relating to civil procedure, professionalism and dispute-resolution processes. Dauber's research interests include court-connected mediation and other forms of dispute resolution, and he regularly presents papers and workshops on Alternative Dispute Resolution-related topics. His most recent articles have related to empirical studies of court-connected mediation and arbitration.
