Alternative Dispute Resolution Competition Approaching

Intra-School Negotiation Competition Taking Place July 20th and 21st

Alternative Dispute Resolution is conducting the annual Intra-School Negotiation Competition on July 20, 2013. The topic this year is Contract Negotiation. Remember that Lawyers negotiate as a routine part of their work. Whether they are negotiating a merger and acquisition, or a settlement between a landlord and tenant; developing effective negotiation skills is critical to a Lawyer’s success. This Competition is a practical way to develop or expand those critical skills of negotiation in a Contracts setting.

The preliminary rounds will take place at each respective campus between 8:00 and 4:30 pm on Saturday, July 20th. The top teams from each respective campus will then compete against each other at the Lansing Campus on Sunday, July 21st from 9 am until 12 pm.

Workshops to prepare for the competition will be conducted on two alternative dates: July 12th from 6-7 pm, or July 13th from 2-3 pm. The workshops will take place on the Lansing Campus; however, Negotiators from sister campuses will be video conferenced in from their respective locations.

To register, please email Porscha Brown at brownpo@cooley.edu by midnight July 11th.

Once registered, the last day to resign from participating is July 13th at midnight. Please
