NEW YORK, Feb. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Practising Law Institute (PLI) is proud to announce that Jim Freund's Smart Negotiating for Lawyers – the most comprehensive and practical resource ever developed to help attorneys master the skill of negotiating – is now available in DVD format.


This six-hour video course, which "will help revolutionize the way young lawyers are trained in the art of negotiating" (Franci J. Blassberg Of Counsel, Debevoise & Plimpton, New York City) features simulated lawyer-to-lawyer and lawyer-client exchanges, punctuated by Jim Freund's insightful commentary on how to make a deal. Experts have called the course "a remarkable tool, accessible and engaging" (William Allen, former Chancellor, Delaware Court of Chancery); "a super way to develop and refine negotiating skills" (Carl W. Schneider, former Partner, Wolf, Block, Schorr and Solis-Cohen LLP, Philadelphia); and "the best course on negotiating I have viewed on the subject in any medium." (John D. Feerick, former Dean, Fordham University School of Law).

Jim Freund, a retired partner of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP and prominent negotiator in many of the major corporate takeover battles of the 1980's, has been called "one of the leading business law negotiators of our generation with incredible skill in teaching others to improve their skills." (Bruce Alan Mann, Senior Partner, Morrison & Foerster LLP, San Francisco)

This boxed set of four DVD discs – including an interactive video, enabling viewers to test their evaluation of how effectively the actor-lawyers are negotiating against Jim's own in-depth analysis – comes complete with Jim's best-selling book, SMART NEGOTIATING – How to Make Good Deals in the Real World, and his special training manual for discussion leaders, designed to maximize the educational value of in-group sessions.
