KUDOS! Law students perform well at Herbert Smith Freehills International Negotiation Competition in India
From Sept. 8 to 10, Schulich School of Law third-year students Kate Scallion, Mike Coady, and Micaela Sheppard represented Canada and Dalhousie University at the Herbert Smith Freehills International Negotiation Competition at the National Law University in New Delhi, India. Nine countries were represented at the competition, with 34 teams participating.
“Taking part in this competition enabled our students to hone their negotiation skills in an international context, engage with individuals from several different countries, visit the National Law School of India, and explore New Delhi,” says Dean Camille Cameron, who coached the team with part-time faculty member Nayha Acharya.
After two preliminary rounds of negotiations, Scallion and Coady ranked second out of the teams and advanced to the quarterfinal round. That round was gruelling; teams had only 15 minutes to prepare their negotiation strategies and were then immediately plunged into a one-hour negotiation session.
Scallion and Coady faired very well in the quarterfinals, falling behind by just one point. All judges were impressed with each of their negotiation sessions and consistently commented on how brilliantly the team performed in terms of business acumen, negotiation strategy, teamwork, and professionalism.
“We are remarkably proud of the students’ achievements,” says Acharya, who accompanied the team to the competiton. “The Schulich School of Law could not have been better represented.”
