Invitation to Host ABA Arbitration Regional Competition

Thanks to GFOI Maureen Weston (Pepperdine) for sending along this note about the ABA’s Arbitration Competition

The ABA Law Student Division is looking for schools to host an Arbitration Regional Competition this fall!

The ABA has decided that the 2021-2022 Arbitration Competition will be remote. This includes nationals. The ABA will waive the entry fee for the host’s competing teams. Hosting a virtual regional competition is a great way to satisfy hosting responsibilities with little to no cost for your school!

The Competition Committee will provide guidance and assistance during planning and throughout the competition. You will be assigned a Committee contact for your competition to assist with planning and administration of the competition. We are planning to use an automatic scoring system, Google docs, and Zoom breakout rooms to help run the competition. We are in the process of revising our virtual rules and host guides. They will be available soon.

The designated dates for the 2021-2022 Regional ­­­­­Arbitration Competition are the weekends of:

November 5-6, 2021

November 12-13, 2021

November 19-20, 2021

Visit the Arbitration Competitions Homepage for additional information about the competition.

Thank you!
