Chicago Bound

LSU Law students Zealon Solomon, Lisa Martinez, Natalie Bailey, and Arthur Kraatz will travel to Chicago in January to compete at the ABA Arbitration Competition National Championships.  The ABA Arbitration Competition team earned one of 12 spots at the national competition after defeating teams from Pace, Fordham, and Texas Tech.

The ABA Arbitration Competition promotes greater knowledge in arbitration by simulating a realistic arbitration hearing. Participants prepare and present an arbitration case, including opening statements, witness examinations, exhibit introductions, evidentiary presentations, and summations.
