Regent Law Students Win NBLSA Annual International Negotiation Competition

Congratulations to Ari Craig and Brenda Thorn, members of Regent Law’s Black Law Student Association chapter (BLSA), who won the 2008 NBLSA Annual International Negotiation Competition held March 28-30 at Detroit Marriott Renaissance Center.

This year’s competition scenario consisted of a number of teams representing national governments, non-governmental agencies, and pharmaceutical companies negotiating the development and implementation of a vaccine to end child mortality in targeted nations.

According to Ari Craig, “The whole experience was amazing. It was really satisfying to win, but I think that I am most thankful for the Regent administration, specifically Prof. McKee and Dean Murphy, for being so supportive of Brenda and me.”

Professor Kathleen McKee served as the team’s faculty advisor/coach; Minka Lanier served as their on-site assistant coach.

The International Negotiations Competition was created to provide NBLSA members with realistic exposure to alternative dispute resolution, to promote NBLSA International Relations, and to foster positive relationships between NBLSA members and other law students around the world.
