Volunteers Needed for 7th Annual In-House Negotiation Competition

Nevada attorneys and judges are needed to volunteer as judges for the William S. Boyd School of Law’s “7th Annual In-House Negotiation Competition” to be held on Friday, April 11, 2014 at the law school on the UNLV campus and sponsored by the Bank of Nevada, Clark County Bar Association, and the Saltman Center for Conflict Resolution.

Student teams will be negotiating scenarios regarding contract law and the sales of goods and services. At the end of the competition, while scores are being tallied, judges will be asked for feedback on how teams performed and what techniques could be improved.
