EXPERT IN BUSINESS LAW, HEALTH LAW, AND NEGOTIATION BECOMES ELIGIBLE FOR OVERSEAS PROJECT
Carey Business School Associate Professor Stacey Lee has been chosen for the roster of the Fulbright Specialist Program, an initiative of the United States Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and World Learning.
As a member of the roster, Lee (right) is eligible to be assigned to a project that matches her expertise at a host institution in any of more than 150 countries. Her tenure on the roster began December 1, 2017, and continues until December 1, 2020.
“I am thrilled to have been accepted to the Fulbright Specialist roster,” said Lee, an expert in business law, health law, and negotiation. “I have spent much of my professional career negotiating. Initially as a litigator and now as a professor specializing in health care law, negotiation and conflict resolution, I am passionate about helping people develop their ability to create value at the negotiation table.”
She added, “As a Fulbright Specialist, I would have the unique opportunity to share these skills with a host institution in a cross-cultural environment. As my background suggests, in many ways this desire is a natural extension of my career-long interest in helping others resolve disputes and create meaningful agreement.”
After being matched with a host institution abroad, a Fulbright Specialist works in partnership with the institution on projects that support its priorities and goals. The activities might include delivering a seminar or workshop, consulting on faculty or workforce development, developing academic or training curricula and materials, lecturing at the graduate or undergraduate level, and conducting needs assessments or evaluations for a program or institution.
After the three-year period ends, specialists are encouraged to continue working with the host institution.
Lee said she expects that her work in the program will involve issues related to health care, negotiation, and conflict resolution.
“I am particularly interested in helping female students develop negotiation and conflict-resolution skills to confront specific workplace challenges they may face so that they can effectively advocate for themselves and others,” she added.
A member of the Carey Business School full-time faculty since 2008, Lee earned her law degree from the University of Maryland School of Law in 1995. Before joining Carey, she worked as a trial lawyer and corporate in-house counsel.
