Years in Review--Thank you KHNT!

Posted By Elaine Owen, Apr 12, 2017

The King Hall Negotiations Team has been my best experience in law school. I loved every minute I spent negotiating, felt re-invigorated after every spar, and just enjoyed all my time with the team. While being a team member brought me success--mainly, winning the 1L Negotiations Competition in 2014 thanks to my amazing partner Matt--I joined the team not for the glory, but because it brought me joy. I hope that future students will find the same joy and comradery. [more]

KHNT also thanks Professor Donna Shestowsky, KHNT's Faculty Advisor, for coaching the teams in preparation for the competition, and further thanks the KHNT team and board members, and other student volunteers, for sparring with the competitors and helping them get ready for the competition.
