Greetings! The St. John's University School of Law Dispute Resolution Society (DRS) has been active in the field of dispute resolution. Last semester we hosted the National Securities Triathlon at our Manhattan Campus; Professor John Lande, a leader in the ADR field visited our Queens campus to discuss his new book "Lawyering with Planned Early Negotiation"; and our external team participated in multiple competitions throughout the country. This semester, we will be hosting the ABA Client Counseling Competition and will be participating in both national and international competitions. We hope to continue our strong presence in dispute resolution by cultivating our own students to be excellent advocates.
DRS cordially invites you, respected members of the legal community, to judge the Spring 2012 Internal Negotiation Competition. The Competition will be held on Sunday, January 29 from 9am to 3pm at the St. John's Law School (Queens Campus). Once again, the competition will consist of two rounds of negotiations that will be based on a hypothetical fact pattern released by the American Bar Association. We expect the competition to be intense and the students to compete vigorously. To maintain our high standards of impartiality and professionalism, we hope you will accept our invitation to judge this prestigious event.
There will be breakfast and lunch served at the competition. Judges will receive Continuing Legal Education credits for their participation. If you need any transportation accommodations, please contact Ross Kartez at email@example.com.
RSVP at your earliest convenience.
Should you have any questions about this event, please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you very much for your time.
