ABA Law Student Division Arbitration Competition

From Friend of Indisputably Kristen Blankley (Nebraska) –

It is time to register for the American Bar Association 2012-13 Arbitration Competition!  For details about the competition and to register your school by the September 14 deadline, please visit the Arbitration Competition Home Page

This unique competition promotes greater knowledge and interest among law students about arbitration by simulating a realistic arbitration hearing. Teams of four students learn how to think, act, and be an advocate representing a client in an arbitration. The students prepare and present an arbitration case and are involved in opening statements, witness examinations, exhibit introductions, evidentiary presentations, and summations. They also experience what it is to be a professional, competent, and ethical advocate. 

The topic of the arbitration this year is a Medical Malpractice Dispute, which is an emerging area of arbitration practice.  Please refer to the Arbitration Competition Home Page for more information about regional competition dates.
