October sees the launch of our annual President’s Cup Negotiation Competition 2019.  The competition is open to solicitors & barristers within 5 years of admission/call, trainee solicitors, pupil barristers,  LPC students, BPTC students & paralegals (with upto 5 years’ experience) work and/or study in Nottinghamshire. 

In brief, the competition consists of two rounds, the first round takes the form of a written submission, based on a set of facts common to both sides of the negotiation. The two highest scoring written responses will make the final round.

The final round takes the form of a face to face negotiation in front of a panel of judges, including the President Jason Waghorne, with each of the two finalists representing a party to negotiate the best possible deal for their client.

The competition details will be circulated at the beginning of October and the deadline for round one submission is 4pm, Friday 15th November, 

The final round will take place on Monday 9th December 2019.

The winner will receive £250 cash and be awarded the President’s Cup Trophy. The runner up will receive a cash prize of £150.
