International Students Learn Effective Negotiation & Arbitration Skills Virtually

Minneapolis, MN, October 24, 2011 - Minneapolis business attorney and tenured legal Engish professor, Karen Lundquist, announces the availability of Global E-Learning courses on employment law and negotiation techniques, as well as various other legal English topics. Areas of the law addressed include wrongful employment terminations, non-competition agreement violations, intellectual property, misappropriation of trade secrets and more. The next course is scheduled to begin in January 2012. Full details and sign-up information are available at

Carefully designed virtual classrooms and syllabi accommodate students and their needs to develop legal English vocabulary as well as powerful negotiation skills in areas of the law that pertain to their given careers. International students benefit from courses which are designed on real-life fact patterns. Mimicking scenarios encountered in worldwide courtrooms and conference rooms, students represent fictitious clientele and engage in:

* Mock settlement negotiations;

* Client interviews;

* Interpretation of case files;

* Dispute arbitration;

* More...

By acting as attorneys, students encounter opportunities to use the technical legal English vocabulary terms they have been studying and need for their profession. At the same time, they hone their lawyering skills that they use when practicing law in their native tongues. Karen states, "The important fact about these courses is not necessarily the topic, such as employment law or intellectual property, but that they revolve around real-life fact patterns with correspondence, affidavits and other documents that an attorney would deal with if working in a real law firm."

To further simulate the authenticity of real life courtroom situations and negotiations, students are also able to initiate "break-out sessions", time periods where they can have confidential discussions in private before returning to the main classroom where the negotiation or arbitration is taking place. Karen concludes, "This course is important and useful because it gives participants chances to learn in the best way possible: by doing."
