Negotiation Participants Sought!

Negotiation Competition Participants Sought

 

Students who are interested in participating in the ABA Law Student Division 2014-15 Negotiation Competition are invited to submit their expression of interest and availability to BOTH Professor Tony Arnold and Professor Mary Jo Gleason (the co-coaches of the teams) at toney.arnold@louisville.edu and MaryJoGleason@kycourts.et.  It is very important that you send an email to BOTH Professors Arnold and Gleason.  Your Message should include: a) why you are interest in the Negotiation 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 evening 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 is not necessary.  The deadline of expressions of interest is Noon on Thursday, September 18th.

 

We will take 2 teams to the regional, which will be either October 31 to November 2 (Friday to Sunday) or November 7 to November 10 (Friday to Monday).  The dates and location for our region have not been set yet.  Please note that the MPRE is November 7 and could possibly conflict with our competition; if you apply to be on the team, you are agreeing to be available then.  The selected participants must be available to travel during either time period (we won’t know which one until we know to which region we will be assigned), by available for practices (2-3 hours each) at least twice per week from September 22 to November 7, and be ABA Law Student Division members in good standing no later than October 1.  If we receive more expression of interest than the 4 spots available on the teams, we will give preference to student 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 3L Jeff Hellman, who competed last year.  Thank you for you interest!

FYOA & FYOAC Photo Album

Here is the link to the FYOA/FYOAC photo album. Feel free to use these photos as you would like!

(disclaimer: There are quite a few 'back of the head' shots -- this i just how it is with the way the courtrooms are set up and also because our photogs were told to be minimally distracting to the competitors. We also did our best to get around to as many courtrooms as possible).
