The Robert J. Grey, Jr. Negotiation Competition is an American Bar Association Law Student Division forum offered to help students develop practical legal skills. The competition emphasizes teamwork and the ability to resolve disputes in a negotiation setting. During the competition, each team will represent a client in a dispute with an opposing party. While both teams will receive the same “General Information” regarding the dispute, each team’s “Confidential Information” will be client-specific. The teams will then negotiate in timed simulations, attempting to reach an agreement that is acceptable to both teams’ clients.
Problems for each round will be distributed through email.
The opening round will consist of a 20 minute negotiation, 2 minute team self-evaluation, and 2 minute team critique. The negotiation period will increase with each round.
Competitors must wear formal business attire.
Facts referenced during the negotiation must be consistent with the facts in the problem. The creation of self-serving facts or assumptions is strictly prohibited.
Competitors may consult resources related to negotiation strategy.
Competitors may not consult with other teams at any time.
