The Center for Negotiation and Dispute Resolution (CNDR) at UC Hastings was honored to host 22 teams from 11 schools around the country for The ABA Regional Negotiation Competition on Saturday 11/9/2019 and Sunday 11/10/2019. Regionals will continue, and Hastings students on The ADR Team will compete at a later date.
The ABA Law Student Division Negotiation Competition provides a means for law students to practice and improve their negotiating skills. The competition simulates legal negotiations in which law students, acting as lawyers, negotiate a series of legal problems. The simulations consist of a common set of facts known by all participants and confidential information known only to the participants representing a particular side. All of the simulations deal with the same general topic, but the negotiation situation varies with each round and level of the competition. The 2019-20 competition topic is Family Law. Good luck to our team!
