Professor Jean Sternlight's Book Reviewed in Dispute Resolution Magazine

Jean Sternlight is the Michael and Sonja Saltman Professor of Law and the Director of the Saltman Center for Conflict Resolution at the UNLV Boyd School of Law.

Recently, her book - Psychology for Lawyers: Understanding the Human Factors in Negotiation, Litigation and Decision Making - which she co-wrote with University of Illinois' Jennifer Robbennolt, was positively reviewed in the Dispute Resolution Magazine by Willamette University's Richard Birke.

Birke begins the review by saying, "Psychology for Lawyers is a great book. Whether you are a transactional lawyer, a litigator, a managing partner or a mediator, you owe it to yourself to buy it, read it and build its lessons into your practice. Authors Jennifer Robbennolt and Jean Sternlight have produced a book that is thorough and readable, based in theory yet imminently practical, and as entertaining as it is educational."

Sternlight is nationally and internationally recognized for her scholarship and law reform activities in the field of dispute resolution.
