Osgoode, represented by JD students Russell Hall and Veronika Stefanski, won first place at the International Negotiation Competition held July 4 to 9, 2016 at the University of Lucerne (Switzerland). The pair received a perfect score, “which is virtually unheard of! Something the Law School can be very proud of,” said Visiting Professor Martha Simmons, Director of Osgoode’s Mediation Clinic and Intensive Program.
The INC is a law student competition in which a team of two law students representing a party/client negotiates either an international transaction or the resolution of an international dispute with an opposing team of two law students. Teams from around the world meet each other and the judges. The judging panel consists of lawyers, business people and leading professors of law from the participating countries.
