What is the King Hall Negotiations Team?

Alternative Dispute Resolution procedures are vital to the modern legal practice.

The King Hall Negotiations Team aims to educate the student body and members of the public regarding negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and other ADR options.  We accomplish this goal by hosting negotiation competitions and sponsoring workshops and guest speakers. We also prepare teams to compete in external negotiation and client counseling competitions. 

Membership on our award-winning Team serves to recognize and reward law students who have excelled in negotiation activities at the law school level.
