Congratulations to the 2014 Negotiation Competition Winners!

     The Negotiation Competition is an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) competition between two teams based on a fictional fact pattern. Each team consists of  two students, both acting as attorneys.The teams are given general information describing the problem. Each team also receives confidential information providing additional details about their client’s interests and needs for reaching an agreement. Based on the general and confidential information, each team advocates to resolve the dispute in the manner most favorable to the client, while still focusing on a mutually beneficial resolution. Teams are neither required to reach an agreement, nor are they penalized for not reaching an agreement; instead the competition focuses on the process of the negotiation and how each team handles the situation. Judges and attorneys evaluate how teams utilize ADR skills and work cooperatively to address their client’s interests. The negotiation competition is an invaluable learning experience for law students.  The competition could not happen without help from local attorneys serving as judges or students volunteering as bailiffs — The Board of Advocates and competitors truly appreciate all of those who made this competition possible. The Board of Advocates congratulates the winners of the 2014 Negotiation Competition:   Winner: Kyle Olmstead & Jenna Homeyer   Runner-Up: Jared Logan & Phil Thornton ***Pictures of the event will be posted in the upcoming...
