Daniel Serviansky is faculty director of the University of Georgia School of Law's Graduate Program in Alternative Dispute Resolution, which offers opportunities to specialize in ADR through the Master in the Study of Law degree and a graduate certificate. He is the faculty coach of the University of Georgia School of Law Negotiation Team.

Before joining UGA in 2022, he taught at Columbia Law's Negotiation Workshop and worked in its Mediation Clinic. At Columbia, he taught the Negotiation Workshop as an adjunct lecturer-in-law and served as a coach, and as a coaches’ coach, in the Mediation Clinic.

He has taught courses at: Columbia’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation; the University of Miami School of Law; the Montefiore Einstein Center for Bioethics; and the Klingenstein Center of Teachers College at Columbia University.

As an ADR practitioner, he has worked on matters that range from court-annexed mediations in trial and family courts to private disputes among business partners and conflicts in the workplace.

Previously, he negotiated deals and resolved disputes at a real estate investment and consulting group, where his role was to manage teams of lawyers and other professionals working to acquire, reposition, finance, refinance, market and sell real estate assets.

He trains and coaches lawyers, mediators, physicians, bioethicists, educators, managers and entrepreneurs. His areas of focus range from difficult conversations in the workplace to interpersonal relationships, and from multiparty investments to international business disputes. He works in both Spanish and English.

He earned his B.A. in history, with distinction, from Yale University and his J.D. from Columbia Law School, where he was a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar.
