(a message from the ABA Law Student Division's Competitions Committee)
Would you like to help students at your school hone their critical thinking and legal skills? The American Bar Association Law Student Division Competitions Program is the perfect vehicle to do just that!
By participating in one or more of the ABA Law Student Division four competitions, law schools can offer all their students the opportunity to participate in intraschool competitions to determine who will win the right and honor of representing their school at the regional competitions.
The ABA Law Student Division is now accepting entry forms for the following competitions:
Ø Arbitration Competition (entry deadline is September 8)
Ø Negotiation Competition (entry deadline is September 15)
Ø Client Counseling Competition (entry deadline is October 27)
Ø National Appellate Advocacy Competition (entry deadline is November 10)
Details about the competitions, as well as online entry forms and a pdf of the Competition Poster, can be found on the Competitions website at http://www.abanet.org/lsd/competitions/.
Last year, over 1,100 students from more than 150 ABA-approved law schools and 2,100 bench and bar members took advantage of the opportunity to participate in the Division’s regional and national competitions.
