LLX’s Negotiation Course Open to University Staff

LLX’s Negotiation Course
“Especially in these times where society is maximally strained, it is incumbent upon all of us to improve our skills in empathizing, communicating and mutually problem-solving," says Director of Executive Education Hamilton Chan (pictured bottom, right).

Billionaire entrepreneur Mark Cuban recently opined that, in the post-pandemic era, the top question any job interviewer will ask a recruit is: “What did you learn during the pandemic of 2020? What skills did you add during the pandemic of 2020?”

Cuban is implying that workers will not get a free pass and be able to get away with saying they merely bided their time during COVID-19. Self-improvement and lifelong learning have only taken on greater importance during these challenging times. LMU Loyola Law School’s LLX Executive Education program aims to be at the forefront of providing legal skills training for modern learners.

“More than ever, LLX’s mission to broaden access to legal education takes on special significance. For those who have not had the opportunity to attend law school, LLX’s powerful online platform lowers the barriers to entry -- whether geographical, economic or temporal -- for learning skills that are at a premium in today’s world,” said LLS Dean Michael Waterstone.

LLX’s six-week course, Negotiating for Success, is fully online and asynchronous, enabling students to learn at their own pace. Now in its fourth cohort, this popular course has been attended by business executives and attorneys at Global 500 companies and some of the nation’s most elite law firms.

“Especially in these times where society is maximally strained, it is incumbent upon all of us to improve our skills in empathizing, communicating and mutually problem-solving," said Director of Executive Education Hamilton Chan, visiting professor of Business & Technology. "These are skills taught in our signature course, Negotiating for Success.”

LLX’s Negotiating for Success also features:

  • Techniques for building rapport and active listening; 
  • A principled framework for negotiating;
  • Tactics for dealing with hard bargainers;
  • A method for preparing for any major upcoming negotiation;
  • Two live simulations to practice negotiating with classmates;
  • A best-in-class proprietary platform that interactively immerses the students in the material;
  • Professional actor portrayals of negotiations and extremely high production quality;
  • A certificate of completion from Loyola Law School upon satisfactory completion of the course.
