Negotiation and Dispute Resolution

The Center for Practice conducts dispute resolution workshops designed for joint law student and practitioner participation. These have included: Decision Analysis for Lawyers, Making Mediators and Mediation Advocacy.  (See CLE Workshops)

American Bar Association Competitions

When there is student interest, UC Law participates in the American Bar Association sponsored competitions in Negotiation and Representation in Mediation. In 2013, UC Law hosted the Regional ABA Negotiation Competition for 20 teams from 10 different law schools across the region.  In recent years, UC Law teams have twice won the National Representation in Mediation Competition, and have twice won at the regional level for the Negotiation competition. Students are selected for the teams in local competitions organized in conjunction with the ADR Club, in which they are judged by practicing attorneys. The selected teams are coached by faculty and practitioners

The students assist with the organization and execution of UC Law's internal competitions in Negotiation, and as scheduled, with hosting of the Mid-West Regional Competition.
