Negotiating in Good Faith/ Martin Rosenfeld, JD

February 21, 2015

How is this for a good quote, by Henry Adams,  about dealing in good faith? “No man likes to have his intelligence or good faith questioned, especially if he has doubts about it himself.” A person who is not able to fully engage in a mediation, may be hampered by prior judgments, commitments, or experiences.

The Cost of Human Life/Martin Rosenfeld, JD

February 6, 2015

In law school, I was introduced to the economic model associated with the University of Chicago in assessing what one should pay in order to save a human life. If, for example, a safer piece of equipment will cost millions of dollars to produce, and will save 10 lives, is that cost an advisable one to assume? […]

Judith Wallerstein’s life work detailed how divorce had a negative impact on the involved children. But not all parents make the same mistake.

Mark Sanford, a former South Carolina Governor, and now US Representative, has agreed to enter into mediation for divorce-related issues with his ex-wife, Jenny. Mr. Sanford took off from his Governor duties, years ago, to meet with his then paramour. The divorce was messy and public. While the idea of mediation is always a good […]

Allison Lichter wrote an article for the Wall Street Journal on 8/6/14 regarding Social Media “manners”. For example, some people preach to the choir while others wish to start passionate debate. One suggestion for dealing comfortably with discussions on the Social Media on controversial topics is described by Professor Ethan Kross of U. of Michigan. […]
