MIAMI (November 14, 2011) — The FIU Law Negotiations Team advances to ABA National Negotiation Competition Final Rounds in New Orleans this coming February.
After an excellent performance at the ABA National Negotiation Competition Regional Rounds in North Carolina this past weekend, law students Maria Pradilla and Joe Glace will compete in the ABA Final Rounds in February 2012. The FIU teams competed in five negotiation rounds among 28 teams from law schools in North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida and Georgia.
“I am proud of our students. I congratulate them for their superb effort and extend our thanks the students and alumni who assisted the team in preparations,” said David Walter, Associate Professor and Faculty Advisor to the FIU Board of Advocates.
This is the 6th time in 8 years that FIU Law has advanced a team to the National Finals.
