With 95 percent of lawsuits settling out of court, negotiation is a critical skill. My online quiz shows lawyers their skill level
Los Angeles, Ca (PRWEB) February 06, 2013
Douglas Noll, preeminent lawyer, professional and internationally recognized mediator, professor and award winning author, and developer of Negotiation Mastery for the Legal Pro, an online California MCLE approved course for lawyers, had added a Negotiation Quiz for Lawyers, to determine their negotiations skill level. Another tool available on the course website is an informative downloadable booklet "The Top Ten Mistakes Lawyers Make in Mediation".
Negotiation Mastery for the Legal Pro teaches attorneys how to gain mastery over their settlement negotiations with laser-targeted precision. Graduates of this course have a distinct advantage in negotiation because they are in complete control at all times. Drawing on academic studies in decision making, game theory, behavioral economics, neuroscience, social psychology, and cognitive psychology, Noll’s 13 year experience as a master mediator, his law school teaching, and his 22 year career as an extraordinarily successful trial lawyer (multiple million dollar settlements, judgments, and verdicts), Noll developed this comprehensive online course on legal negotiation. From engaged self-reflection to conducting risk analysis with the latest and most sophisticated negotiation modeling software, Noll instructs lawyers on what it takes to become a masterful negotiator. “With 95 percent of lawsuits settling out of court, negotiation is a critical skill. My course is the bridge in the education gap and speeds the learning curve for developing master negotiators,” Noll explains.
