Recently, two teams of FIU Law students competed in the 7th Annual National Black Law Students Association (NBLSA) International Negotiations Competition in Atlanta. The competition, sponsored by BARBRI, took place at the NBLSA convention March 6 – 10, 2013.
One of the teams consisted of Chanel Rowe (2L) and Daniel Cartwright (2L), while the other consisted of Kelly Torres (3L) and Keyla Smith (2L). Rowe and Cartwright finished second in the national competition. Smith won Best Negotiator of Preliminary Round Two.
Each team was tasked with negotiating cross-border conflicts based on current issues affecting our global community. With 50 minute negotiating rounds, it made for a competitive and time-intensive competition.
