Video 4. I'll See You in CourtVideo 4: This video discusses what is required to be an effective negotiator. Tim Brooke-Taylor is joined by two barristers – one acting as his opponent and one as his instructor. As Tim attempts to reach a settlement on behalf of his client, he repeatedly finds himself tangled in some of the many difficulties and dilemmas involved in negotiating.
Learning from his own mistakes, the advice of his instructor and the example of his opponent, Tim reaches an agreement with his opponent that meets with the approval of his client and the judge.
