After prepping for and competing in an international competition for more than a week without much sleep, Mitchell Hamline students Austyn Boothe and Daniel Sheikhan decided to stay up until 4 am a few nights ago to watch the results. It proved a good choice.
The duo won first place last week in the 2021 International Negotiation Competition. This is the second time in Mitchell Hamline’s six-year history that a team of its students won the top prize.
Boothe and Sheikhan represented the United States and were one of 28 teams from around the world taking part in a series of negotiation sessions over five days. Each day featured simulated international negotiation sessions judged by a panel of legal experts from around the world – this year’s sessions related to space law.
Congratulations Austyn and Daniel!
