Designing the Negotiation module (LAW1025)

Natasha Bellinger


In the present article, I will be focusing on the design and development of the Law School's Negotiation module (LAW1025). Negotiation is a relatively new module which commenced in Term 2 of the 2012/13 academic year. First year Law students undertake Legal Foundations for the duration of Term 1, and are then able to choose one of three (formerly two) options: Advocacy, Learning from Work Experience and now Negotiation. The module aims to teach vital academic, professional and transferable skills; it also offers learning via simulation. One of the key successes of the module is the e-learning element, including an in-depth virtual simulation which provided the springboard for practical simulations and assessment. The article thus also provides an opportunity to reflect on the issues involved in virtual and practical simulation.
