Regent University School of Law’s Alternative Dispute Resolution Board (ADR) made a strong showing at the ABA Regional Negotiation Competition held November 12-13, 2011 at the Richmond School of Law in Richmond, Va.
The team of Hannah Carter and Chris Bell placed finished second overall from a roster of over 24 teams representing George Mason, William & Mary, Georgetown, American University, Washington & Lee and other law schools throughout Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware, West Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C
Both of Regent’s teams made the final round of four, with the team of Shiann Ashenbrenner and Braden Morgan finishing third overall.
Carter and Bell are hopeful they will receive an official invitation from the ABA to compete in the national competition, February 3-4, 2012 in New Orleans, La.
Team coach Prof. Eric DeGroff commented on his students’ exemplary performance.
“They were a joy to behold,” he said. “What impressed me most about them was that they were able to think both intelligently and globally about what would be good for their client in this case,” he said. “They went into the negotiations with a plan, and they carried it out."
Other recent Regent ADR wins include the 2009 Merhige National Environmental Negotiation Competition and the 2007 ABA National Negotiation Championship.
