Negotiation Competition in Michigan - Expressions of Interest Due Sept 7!
Students who are interested in participating in the ABA Law Student Division 2012-13 Negotiation Competition are invited to submit their expression of interest and availability to BOTH Professors Arnold and Gleason at firstname.lastname@example.org and MaryJoGleason@kycourts.net. It is very important that you send an email message to both Professors Arnold and Gleason, who are the co-coaches of the teams.
Your message should include: a) why you are interested in the Negotation Competition Team; b) any experience you have had with negotiations (including any past or current classes or other experience); c) your time availability for practices in the evenings and on weekends during September, October, and early November; d) your cell phone number and your email addresses. You may attach a resume if you would like, but it's not necessary.
The deadline for expressions of interest is Noon on Friday, September 7. We will take 2 teams to the Region 6 competition in Lansing, Michigan on November 10 and 11. The selected participants must be available to travel to Lansing November 9-12, be available for practices (2-3 hours each) at least twice per week from October 1 to November 9, and be ABA Law Student Division members in good standing no later than October 1. If we receive more expressions of interest than the 4 spots available on the teams, we will give preference to students with negotiation experience, as this competition develops and requires advanced negotiation skills.
If you have questions about what participation in the competition is like, you might want to contact 3Ls Jill Smith and Carli Clowers, who competed last year. Thank you for your interest!
