Multi-Stage Divorce Simulation - Negotiation

Professor John Lande uses this multi-stage divorce simulation in his Negotation course at the University of Missouri School of Law. This simulation focuses on division of property and child support issues. Students are provided a package of materials that includes role-play instructions, written assignments, logistical information for each stage, self-assessment forms, and teaching notes. Throughout the simulation, half the students play parties and half play lawyers. Other simulations in the course allow for students to reverse roles.
