The annual Fillmore Riley Negotiation Competition will take place at Robson Hall on Thursday, October 18, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. in the Faculty Lounge. This will be the 9th consecutive year that Fillmore Riley LLP has sponsored the competition. Sixteen teams will be competing, with the winners going on to compete at subsequent inter-law school competitions. Robson Hall’s 2014 winner went on to win the 2015 International Negotiation Competition in Dublin, Ireland. Many students report that the experience, especially the insightful feedback they receive from the judges from Fillmore Riley, is a highlight of their law school careers.
