When there is student interest, UC Law participates in the American Bar Association sponsored competitions in Negotiation and Representation in Mediation. Over the past several 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. Laura Railing '08 and Keith Hagan '08 won First Place at the ABA’s regional 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 Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Club promotes negotiation and dispute resolution activities. The students assist with the organization and execution of UC Law's internal competitions in Negotiation and Representation in Mediation, and as scheduled, with hosting of the Mid-West Regional Competition. The ADR Club also hosts speakers on topics in negotiation and dispute resolution.
