Douglas E. Noll Professional Mediator
(PRWEB) December 19, 2012
Los Angeles…….Douglas Noll, master negotiator, award winning lawyer and adjunct professor of law announces the Negotiation Mastery for the Legal Pro online course for lawyers is now approved for California MCLE credits. “After years as a trial lawyer, and achieving expertise in negotiation skills and strategy, I created a comprehensive course that combines years of practical knowledge through this negotiation skills course for lawyers. Colleagues who review this course agree that there is nothing like it in the marketplace, and teaches critical skills that are unmet in law school and on the job training,” Noll explains. From engaged self-reflection to conducting risk analysis with the latest and most sophisticated negotiation modeling software, Noll’s course instructs lawyers on what it takes to become a masterful negotiator. “Negotiation is not part of the core law curriculum, and the skill set required for effective legal negotiation is generally disdained by academia. Thus, young attorneys are not prepared for the most important skill in lawyering: negotiating on behalf of clients,” Noll says. Read the rest of this entry »
