UCL Laws LLB students compete in CEDR National Student Negotiation Competition 2019

8 April 2019

Over the course of the second term in 2019, the UCL Laws LLB team – comprising of 2nd year LLB students Annabel Cheung and Sue Yin – competed at the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR) National Student Negotiation Competition 2019.

The competition - organised and sponsored by CEDR in collaboration with the University of Law - pits pairs of law students from across England, Scotland and Wales against each other to negotiate a series of challenging fictional scenarios. This final of this year’s competition was held at Cardiff University, Wales.

The team fought brilliantly in the tightly contested regional heat in London and was one of 12 teams out of an initial 66 teams across the country to progress to the final. They were ranked 9th overall after the final.

Annabel Cheung commented:

“I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to compete in the UK National Student Negotiation Competition on behalf of UCL and to make it to the national finals in Cardiff. I am particularly thankful to the judges, CEDR trainers, and the other teams, as negotiating in their presence has allowed me to develop more negotiation tactics and techniques for realistic commercial settings. This experience has been filled with an amalgamation of adrenaline and enthusiasm from the preparation stage to the actual negotiation. It has been an absolutely eye-opening experience which I enjoyed every moment of.”

Congratulations to both Annabel and Sue, and for representing UCL Laws brilliantly!
