1st NLIU International Law School Negotiation Competition
GENERAL DETAILS OF THE COMPETITION
I. FORMAT OF THE COMPETITION
The nature of the Tournament shall be that of a Commercial Negotiation, involving 2 participants from each participating team, viz. the Client and the Counsel. Owing to the technical difficulties over Virtual Rounds, the number of teams will be restricted to 24, which would be shortlisted on the basis of CVs.
Further, we plan to make it mandatory for each participant to play the roles of both Client and Counsel in the Preliminary rounds, i.e. if a client participates as a Client in the first preliminary round, he is obligated to participate as a counsel in the second preliminary round and vice-versa for his team partner. The time- limit shall be 60 minutes for the Preliminary Rounds, and 90 minutes for the Advanced Rounds.
