SOAS - Jones Day Negotiation Competition (deadline 16 Feb)

The SOAS – Jones Day Negotiation Competition is a simulation of real-life legal negotiations based on dialogue and discussion between two sets of partners, acting as solicitors on behalf of clients, to attempt to resolve the legal issues entailed in the provided case scenarios. By the end of the competition, participants will gain valuable experience in negotiation and dispute resolution and an in-depth understanding of the procedures and formalities it involves.

 This is an excellent opportunity to acquire, develop, and practice negotiation and persuasion skills in a team environment. It is also a wonderful opportunity to interact with Jones Day, a prestigious law firm which is lauded for being both a litigation and corporate powerhouse, for its collaborative culture, and for its unique non-rotation training program. Participating in the SOAS – Jones Day Negotiation Competition will be an excellent way to showcase your collaborative skills, your ability to think analytically and excel under pressure to your future employers.

 The competition is open to both Law and non-Law students, and there is no previous experience required as training will be provided. Please find attached further details regarding the competition.
