Voices from the Field: Yasmin Naghash, "I Learned to Come to Solutions"

In this video interview, Yasmin Naghash discusses the benefits she gained from taking the International Business Negotiations class at American University, taught by Professor Jay Finkelstein. Now working for a boutique law-firm in Washington, D.C., she describes how Professor Finkelstein successfully simulated an international transactional legal practice by requiring students to take a set of unknowns, as opposed to a fact pattern, and forcing students to come up with solutions.
