Finalists Announced for the National Student Negotiation Competition for England and Wales 2017
London, England, 27 February 2017.
CEDR is delighted to announce today the 12 Finalists for the National Student Negotiation Competition for England and Wales 2017.
At four regional competitions in Bristol, Chester, Leeds and London, 70 teams from 42 universities competed in pairs to negotiate two challenging fictitious negotiation scenarios. The teams were judged by panels of lawyers, business people and legal academics. Frederick Way, Lead Organiser of the Competition, said “It was a pleasure to see so many talented young lawyers displaying the skills needed to be a negotiator, understanding the process and effectively deploying vital softer skills. We were also pleased that this year so many students took advantage of the free resources and webinars that CEDR had created for the competition to improve their skills.”
The finalists will receive a complimentary Negotiation Training provided by CEDR to help them prepare for the finals, which will take place on 1 April at the University of Law, Moorgate.
The competition, which is run and sponsored by CEDR with venue support in Bristol, Chester and Leeds from the University of Law, has been going for 17 years. In the final, the teams will compete in three new scenarios, including a multi-party negotiation. The National Winners will then go on to represent England and Wales at the International Negotiation Competition for Law Students, to be held in Oslo, Norway in June 2017.
