King Hall Negotiations Competition Draws Record Turnout

On September 21, the King Hall Negotiations Team hosted the second annual 1L Negotiations Competition held at UC Davis School of Law. The event this year saw a record-breaking turnout of 40 first-year students competing in two rounds of preliminary negotiations. 

In each round, students negotiated a different legal problem and were evaluated by KHNT Board and Team Members, all of whom are second- and third-year law students.  This year's topic, provided by the American Bar Association, focused on Real Property. Following the two rounds, the top four teams were selected to compete in the afternoon final round. The competition was fierce this year and selecting the finalists was difficult, as there were several notable performances and strong negotiators throughout the competition.

Earning congratulations as the two winning teams were Kate Kennedy '16 and Abby Mulvihill '16 and Ian Cecere '16 and Aaron Israel '16.  Rounding out the finalists were teams made up of Jacob Boyer '16 and Enrique Fernandez '16 and Samantha Mandell '16 and Greg Agron '16.

The King Hall Negotiations Team was honored to administer this year's competition under the direction of Board President Kyle Junginger '14, Internal Competitions Chair Amanda Baratz '15, and the rest of the King Hall Negotiations Board and Team. The team would like to thank Professor Donna Shestowsky for her faculty guidance. Additionally, the team would like to thank the Deans for their support, Gia Hellwig and the Marketing Department for their assistance, and all of the competitors and judges for coming out and participating in a fantastic event this year.
