“I joined the Negotiation Moot Court Team for the 2009-2010 year.  Being a part of the Negotiation Team has been a life-changing experience.  Not only did I learn and master crucial practical skills needed to prepare me for the everyday legal world, but I gained knowledge from some of the best negotiators in the region.  The knowledge gained and various techniques discovered from practicing with your peers and faculty, in addition to the feedback you receive from practicing attorneys, is invaluable!  Negotiating is a skill that will be utilized in every aspect of the law and it is extremely beneficial to learn from some of the best.  Aside from the practical benefit, the bond that was formed with the team itself made every aspect enjoyable and non-regrettable. It was an experience I was grateful to be a part of and would encourage anyone to embrace.”Nicole Witteck (2009-10 Team Member)

“Being on the negotiation team was a highlight of my law school experience.  Not only did I learn how to be an effective negotiator but I had a lot of fun in the process.”  – Diane Johnson (2009-10 Team Member)

“Negotiation team was one of the most enjoyable and meaningful experiences I had in law school.  As both a competitor and student coach on the team, I developed valuable practical lawyering skills that I will carry with me into real world practice.  I really enjoyed the collaborative and collegial atmosphere created by the coaches and competitors at practice.  Above all, we were a team, and each of us was dedicated to ensuring the success of our teammates.”Sandra San Emeterio (2008-09 Team Member)
