Spring 2015 Negotiation Workshop 1L Application Information - Available to All 1L Sections

1L students in all 1L sections are eligible for admission to the Spring 2015 Negotiation Workshop. Because of the special nature of the Workshop, 1L admission to the Negotiation Workshop will be through a separate application process that will occur before the online lottery for other 1L spring electives.

The Negotiation Workshop will meet on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3:20 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. during the Spring, and will end one week before the regular end of the semester.


 In order to be considered for admission to the Negotiation Workshop you must:

• Carefully read the Important Information Relating to the Spring 2015 Negotiation Workshop Form;

Complete the Online Application Form, and upload your resume and a short one-page cover letter of interest in a single PDF document; and
Your cover letter should tell us succinctly who you are, why you want to take the Workshop, what experiences you have had that may enrich the Workshop for others, how the Workshop fits into your broader academic or career goals, and any other information you deem relevant and persuasive.

Complete the 1L Participant Commitment Form, and submit it in-person, to Negotiation Workshop Coordinator, April Pettit, in Pound 513.

PLEASE NOTE:  If you are admitted to the Workshop, you will be notified via e-mail on or before Friday, November 7, 2014 and will be automatically enrolled in the Workshop. Consequently, you will not need to participate in the regular 1L elective process online.

Feel free to direct additional questions about the Negotiation Workshop to April Pettit at or 617-495-1618.


Contact the Registrar’s Office at 617-495-4612 or with questions.
