Two teams from LSU Law competed in the ABA Law Student Division’s regional Negotiation Competition held at the South Texas College of Law in Houston.

The two-person teams of Paul DeClouet and Josh Rees and Wendra Moran and Chais Sweat worked very hard under the guidance of Professor Liz Murrill. Twenty-eight teams competed, with the highest overall advancing to the national finals in Miami. This was the first negotiation competition in which LSU has competed, and both teams scored well but did not advance to the finals.
