International Chamber of Commerce Mediation Competition 2022
Nottingham Law School students take part in international mediation competition.
Four students from Nottingham Law School recently represented the university at the International Chamber of Commerce Mediation Competition 2022. The students competed in pairs over four rounds against universities from Australia, the United States, Indonesia and Brazil. The students were selected from an internal negotiation competition and were coached through the competition by lecturers Megan Shirley and Peter Vaughan.
Joy Davies, Principal Lecturer at Nottingham Law School, judged various rounds of the competition including the final between the University of Auckland and the University of Sao Paulo.
Lane Castro, a student on our part-time Legal Practice Course said:
I really enjoyed participating at the ICC mediation week. The scenarios were complex and interesting. The range of topics (from robots to construction disputes) really forced us to think outside the box and come up with creative solutions to some unique problems. Being able to network and receive personalised feedback from renowned international mediators was truly an honour and a privilege. We formed connections that could potentially help us down the line in our professional careers.
Oliver Livingstone, a student on our undergraduate LLB degree said:
I really enjoyed my experience. Everyone involved with the competition did very well to put the participants at ease, in a very competitive environment. Through the feedback I received and self-reflection, I learned more about meditation methodology. Consequently, I have gained some crucial employability skills and developed my abilities as an aspiring legal professional.
