  • 11th annual Nelson Mandela International Negotiations Competition
  • The NMINC is the only non-litigation competition offered by NBLSA
  • Participants negotiate complex cross-border issues that simulate real-world conflicts


Competition Overview

  • No Regional Competition
  • Law schools send teams of two students to compete at the National Convention in Houston, TX March 7-12, 2017.
  • Team are provided with general facts as well as confidential facts
  • Confidential facts lay out the team and individual goals, motivations, and boundaries for heading into the negotiation
  • Teams are scored on their ability to use creativity, teamwork, and strategic planning to reach a mutual agreement, while securing the best possible outcome for their side.


Purpose and Applicability

  • More than 95% of cases settle before trial. Even fewer reach the appellate courts.
  • Whether striving to be a litigator, transactional attorney, or anything in between, the ability to successfully negotiate and deal with people in high-stakes scenarios is a game-changer.
  • This competition is one of the best opportunities students will have during law school to develop their negotiation skills.
