Attorney Karen J. Levitt was a guest lecturer again this past fall at the Massachusetts School of Law at Andover, MA. Karen spoke to a lively group of law students in their Collaborative Justice course, taught by Assistant Dean and Professor of Law Paula Kaldis. Karen spoke about Collaborative Law, its use in divorce and family law, and its application in business and probate disputes. Karen focused on the Collaborative Law process, training to be a Collaborative Law attorney, and the intentional focus on settlement in Collaborative Law which is different than the traditional ligation model which is focused on “winning”. The law students were very astute in their questions, really wanting to learn about different kind of dispute resolution processes. Law students often have no real life experience in dispute resolution, and as lawyers will ultimately be part of some type of dispute resolution process whether it is in or out of court, Karen enjoys teaching and sharing her knowledge and experience with law students. Karen formerly taught legal research and writing to first year law students at Boston University School of Law.
