Andrew Mamo joined NIU in 2020 and teaches in the areas of contracts, business associations, dispute resolution, mediation and negotiation. He was previously a Lecturer on Law at Harvard Law School and a Clinical Instructor at the Harvard Negotiation and Mediation Clinical Program. At Harvard, Professor Mamo taught negotiation and supervised teams of clinical students in representing clients on a range of dispute systems design projects. Professor Mamo’s research broadly concerns the experiences of disputants within the legal system. More specifically, he studies the history and theory of dispute resolution and negotiation, with a particular focus on the history of dispute resolution practices, the role of technology in dispute resolution, and the professionalization of third-party neutrals. His current projects include a study of race and negotiation theory and a study of the use of non-judicial dispute resolution mechanisms in international law.

Professor Mamo received his J.D. from Harvard Law School in 2014, his Ph.D. in history from the University of California, Berkeley in 2011, and his S.B. in physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2004. Prior to returning to Harvard Law School, he worked on cross-border capital markets and project finance transactions at a major international law firm in Singapore, and clerked for Judges Hisashi Owada and Julia Sebutinde at the International Court of Justice in The Hague.
