The University of Law are looking for people willing to give feedback to undergraduate/GDL/LPC/BPTC students taking part in a negotiation competition and to help to select teams who might progress to the national and international stages of the competition. A legal background is not necessary; we are looking for people with an interest in negotiation skills who are prepared to give encouraging feedback to students on their approach.
The competition is run by the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR), and will be hosted at the University of Law on Saturday 2nd March from 12 pm – 5.30 pm. We are expecting students representing various Universities across the South-West and Wales.
There will be a briefing for the judges to provide guidance on how to score the teams and the focus of the feedback. There is also time to eat the lunch provided, read the scenarios, and mingle with other judges between 12 and 1pm. Each judge will be paired with another judge and will watch two negotiations during the course of the afternoon. The teams proceeding to the national final will be announced by 6:00pm and there will be wine and nibbles if you would like to stay to hear the result.
The competition will be taking place in Bristol at The University of Law, Bristol, Temple Circus House, Temple Way, Bristol BS1 6HG. The nearest station is Bristol Temple Meads which is 5 minutes’ walk away. Full details of how to get to the University of Law, Bristol are here: http://www.law.ac.uk/about/getting-to-bristol/
If you are potentially interested in being involved as a judge for the negotiations (or know someone who might be) or if you want to ask any questions about the event, please do contact Zoe King (Zoe.King@law.ac.uk) or the organiser of the competition, Dalitso Tembo (firstname.lastname@example.org).
