This article discusses and evaluates a teaching initiative conducted by the authors and their students in 2006. At the time, the authors were teaching in law schools in different States of Australia and were the coordinators of an elective subject, Dispute Resolution, in each school’s undergraduate law curriculum. The two subjects had similar content but the class demographics and sizes, as well as the teaching structures and methodologies varied. The on-line negotiation exercise was a small part of the overall units, taking up about two weeks of the semester-long units, and comprising part of the students’ summative assessment.
