Congratulations to Mitchell Hamline’s ABA Negotiation Competition Regional Winners
The ABA Negotiation Competition Team of Austyn Boothe and Daniel Sheikhan (blended learning students) won the regional competition. The virtual competition format did not slow these students down, and they will represent MHSL in the National Competition next semester. Negotiation team members Adrienne Baker and Sean Lumsden also competed and did really well. The team is coached by Adjunct Professor Pat Zitek, Professor Ken Fox and Dean of Students Lynn LeMoine.
Congratulations to all the students and coaches!
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.
