Negotiation Team Heading to Nationals This Weekend!

Please help us in wishing the best of luck to Carli Clowers and Jillian Smith as they head to Dallas, Texas this weekend with Coach Tony Arnold to compete at the ABA Negotiation Competition National Finals. Carli and Jillian placed 3rd out of 20 teams in the final round of Regionals in Lansing, Michigan in November, after being tied for 1st in the initial round, and missing 2nd place by only 1 point. They have been working tirelessly these last few weeks preparing for Nationals and will undoubtedly make the law school proud! Good luck Carli and Jillian!

Congratulations to the ABA Arbitration Team

As regional finalists in the Illinois Region ABA Arbitration Competition, Brad Johnson, Darick Crumbly, Derek Miles, and Emily Harris were one of only ten teams, out of sixty-two teams nationwide, to compete in the ABA National Arbitration Competition on January 25, 2013. They competed in front of nine arbitrators, and the written comments of one of those arbitrators best sums up their performance. He stated that the team, “did an excellent job on all aspects of [the] case.” Their coach, Professor Ariana Levinson, is most proud of the team’s professional and ethical presentation. The team was complemented repeatedly by the other team members, coaches, and judges on their professionalism and courtesy. The team would like to thank Mark Gray and Matt White of Gray and White Law and Grover Potts of Wyatt Tarrant & Combs LLP for the financial support that made their trip possible.

Good Luck to the Arbitration Team!
