LAW 831

Interpersonal Dynamics

Formerly: Interpersonal Dynamics for Attorneys. In Intensive Interpersonal Dynamics, students learn the skills essential to establishing, maintaining, and deepening effective relationships, increasing influence, and effectively resolving conflict. At the same time, they also increase self-awareness, self-acceptance, and authentic self-expression. Most of the students who have taken the course have said that it had a profound positive impact on their lives. The important learning in this course comes from neither reading nor lectures, but from in-class participation. Unlike other law-school courses, participation does not involve theoretical discussion or legal analysis. It requires honest self-disclosure—sharing real-time feelings and thoughts with others and listening to others do the same. For more about the course, see Rosenberg, Interpersonal Dynamics: Helping Lawyers Learn the Skills, and the Importance, of Human Relationships in the Practice of Law, 58 U. Miami L. Rev. 1225
