This common experience of time pressed negotiations has received surprisingly rare attention even though many studies have documented how taking shorts cuts when rushed can produce suboptimal outcomes. This talk for experienced mediators and negotiators considers what to do when facing a deadline and needing to triage.




Professor Hal Abramson, Touro University Law Center, New York, has been deeply involved in the development and practice of domestic and international dispute resolution for more than twenty-five years. He contributes as a teacher, trainer, author, and participant on professional committees and serves actively as a mediator and facilitator. He also has taught or trained on dispute resolution in twenty-two countries on six continents (19 in-person, 3 on Zoom). He is an award-winning author with three of his publications receiving awards from the CPR International Institute for Conflict Resolution. In 2020, he was the sole recipient of Touro University’s Presidential Award for Scholarship.

Professor Abramson has been selected for the International Who’s Who of Commercial Mediation since its inaugural year and served as the first Scholar-in-Residence for the International Academy of Mediators.  He chaired the committee that drafted the rules for the ABA Mediation Representation Competition, served on the inaugural committee that launched the ICC Mediation Competition in Paris, and Chaired the Task Force for IMI that drafted the first ever standards for certifying cross-cultural mediators. He also was involved with drafting the new UN Singapore Mediation Convention including serving as an expert advisor to UNCITRAL and co-chairing the first symposium on the Convention.

While at Touro, he served as vice dean for nine years including as acting dean twice and taught a wide range of dispute resolution and business courses including currently first year contracts. He also has visited full-time at Cardozo Law School in NYC, UNLV Law School in Las Vegas, and the U.S. Air Force Academy where he helped build its negotiation program.
