Negotiation & Dispute Resolution Student Competitions

Washington University students have benefited greatly from and achieved remarkable success in negotiation and dispute resolution skills competitions over the past 25 years. Washington University has won the national championships in the ABA Client Counseling and ABA Negotiation Competitions, and Washington University teams have finished second, third, fifth, and seventh in the nation since first entering the highly competitive ABA Representation in Mediation Competition seven years ago. Law students also participate in the 1L/LLM intraschool competitions in client interviewing/counseling and negotiation.
