The Environmental Dispute Resolution (EDR) Program requests RMMLF Special Project funding to develop a series of inter-connected role-play simulation exercises that will be used to teach mineral law students and practitioners negotiation and collaborative problem-solving skills in a risk-free, but realistic, environment. Each of the exercises will rely on the same set of facts about a mineral development project. They will be designed to successively engage students in learning key skills and concepts; each simulation will build on the lessons learned in prior exercises. The simulations will be designed to expose participants to a variety of stakeholder roles, with the aim of enhancing participants’ ability to fully understand the varying perspectives on complex mineral law issues.
