For over ten years, CEDR in collaboration with the University of Law, has organised and sponsored the National Student Negotiation Competition which pits teams of law students from UK university law schools against one another to find the most effective negotiators. The winners of the competition will then go on to represent England and Wales at the International Negotiation Competition.
There are three regional heats of the competition, the winners of those heats then progress to the national finals, and the winning team of which travels to an international championship. CEDR offer the winners of the regional finals a one-day negotiation skills training course, giving them even more tools to use as they compete in the final.
About the National Student Negotiation Competition 2023
The National Student Negotiation Competition 2023 consists of regional heats in Leeds, London and a virtual one. We will try to allocate teams to one of the regional heats depending on their preference however we cannot guarantee your choice of regional heat. Early applicants are likely to receive their first choice of location.
This year the national final is being hosted by the University of Exeter (the winners of the National Student Negotiation Competition 2022).
The National Competition winners will receive the competition trophy and will be eligible to go forward to the International Negotiation Competition for Law Students, to be hosted in Porto Alegre, Brazil from 4 July until 9 July.
