Arbitration Competition Now Open to 2Ls

Participating in the ABA’s Student Division Arbitration Competition is a rare opportunity to learn about and practice your arbitration skills as a student.  The team is now open for 2Ls to interview to join the team.  You will be awarded two credits for your participation.  You must be prepared to devote considerable preparation time and between two to four hours of practice time per week from the end of September through early November.  You will also need to do some light reading on arbitration over the summer so that we can hit the ground running when the problem is released in September. 

Most interviews will be held with Professor Levinson and Josh Speirs, one of the returning team members.  Lily Chan, the other team member, may also join the interviews.  Please be prepared to discuss 1) why you are interested in arbitration, 2) what courses you will be taking Fall semester, and 3) what other obligations you must devote time to.

We will be interviewing through finals.  Please sign up for a slot on the sheet posted outside room 285 (Professor Levinson’s office).  If the times do not work for you, please contact Professor Levinson to schedule another time to meet.

Participation is, of course, contingent on law school funding decisions.
