Regent Law Advanced to Semifinals at National Environmental Negotiation Competition


On April 5, Katherine David (pictured) and Timothy Chiasson advanced to the semifinals in the Robert R. Merhige, Jr. National Environmental Negotiation Competition at the University of Richmond School of Law. They placed among the top four teams. Professor Eric DeGroff, director of the Center for Advocacy, coached the pair.

"This was truly a team effort," says Professor DeGroff. "Timothy, Katherine, and the entire ADR Board worked diligently to research the issues and prepare for every possibility. It was a pleasure to watch how all the work came together in their performance."

"I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to compete on behalf of Regent Law School," Katherine says. "Advancing to the semifinals was certainly a team effort, and we could not have done it without the coaching and support given by Professor DeGroff and the rest of the ADR Board. The experience I had was very rewarding and certainly something that will help my ability to negotiate as I enter the legal profession."

Regent Law has competed in Merhige Environmental Negotiation Competition for more than 20 years. Regent Law teams were national champions four times, national finalists seven times, and semifinalists twice.
