Lawrence Negotiation Competition October 11-15

The annual Lawrence Negotiation Competition this year is scheduled for October 11-15, the week after fall break. This competition is a chance for any student interested in negotiation to hone their skills, and the winners and runners up qualify as Moritz’s representatives in the regional ABA Law Student Division Negotiation Competition, and can move on to the national competition.

During the competition, teams of two law students working as advocates for a fictitious client negotiate against one another. They are judged on their ability to work together, establish rapport with the opposing team, and maximize the interests of their client. Every team competes in the first two rounds, after which the competition becomes single elimination.

The competition is run by the Moot Court and Lawyering Skills Program. Students interested in competing should contact Anne Doyle. If a student is enrolled in Professor Stulberg’s Negotiation class, they are already in the competition as a course requirement.

Students who are interested in competing, but who have not had a course in negotiation, should consider attending the pre-competition Negotiation Workshop, where Professor Batra will go over the basics of negotiation. The Negotiation Lecture is scheduled for Tuesday, September 28, from 6-9:30 p.m., in Drinko 354.
