Book Release Party for CNDR Professor Lucia Kanter St. Amour
November 10 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
The Center for Negotiation and Dispute Resolution CNDR is pleased to announce the book release of a UC Hastings Law alum and long-time CNDR faculty member!
Endorsed by Robert Cialdini and featured on NPR, Lucia Kaner St. Amour (formerly Stephanie Lucia) is one of only about 6 women authors in the general marketplace on the topic of negotiation with her book For the Forces of Good: The Superpower of Everyday Negotiation. The icing in the cake for us is that the College is featured as a recurring “character” throughout the book!
PLEASE JOIN US from 4:30-6:00pm on Thursday November 10 in our Deb Colloquium and Skydeck (5th floor) at the 333 Golden Gate building on the UC Hastings campus to celebrate Lucia’s book and her sparkling representation as a UC Hastings Law alum.
Notably, the book shot to “#1 NEW RELEASE” status on Amazon after just 3 days!
Lucia is a Vice President for United Nations Women, and a 1998 graduate of UC Hastings Law, San Francisco. She has been practicing law since 1998, and ten years of her practice included clinical teaching positions in mediation; and in negotiation and settlement at both University of California law schools at Berkeley and San Francisco (as a seminal faculty member of the CNDR). She has lectured at many prominent law and business schools in the U.S. and Europe and served for a number of years as an annual competition judge and mediator for the International Chamber of Commerce in Paris. One of the original designers of the pilot mediation program for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s San Francisco regional office in 1996, Lucia has a deep background in mediation and earned her mediation certification from the Harvard Law School Program on Negotiation.
In 2022, she launched her podcast, Forces of Good: The Superpower of Everyday Negotiation, which gained an immediate dedicated following for its inclusive storytelling and social-cultural-historical approach to negotiation as it relates to everyone every day. She is also founder and executive director of Spectrum Strategies, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization providing siblings support, and dog matching and training to families of children with autism. Having represented a special education student as part of the Civil Justice Clinic when she was a law student, Lucia has maintained a pro bono practice assisting families with special education students her entire legal career.
Mother of five boys (three canine and two human), studied in six languages, a pianist, a single digit index golfer, and a home chef of really legitimate Italian cuisine, she splits her time between San Francisco and Walnut Creek – at least until her youngest son, a Senior at the Ruth Asawa School of The Arts, graduates in 2023.
