Dentons Competition 2015 Winners

The annual Dentons Negotiation Competition took place at UVic on September 28th, and the winners of the UVic Law round of the competition are first year Law students Adam Bosma and Sabdeep Sidhu. Taylor Buckley, Jeff Walls and Jill Macgillivray from the Dentons Vancouver office came over to facilitate the competition, aided by local lawyers and professionals who act as judges. There were 16 teams of 2 students each, with 8 negotiations going on simultaneously, which made for an exciting event!

Winners Adam and Sabdeep will represent UVic Law at the regional competition in Calgary this November. Winners of the regional competition will go to the national competition in San Diego in February before competing internationally. More information on the competition can be found on the American Bar Association website and the Dentons Negotiation Competition website.

Claudia Arrieta de Diaz and Jennifer Lee tied for second place with Melissa Ku and Erika Syrotuk. Third place went to Sam Shury and Ian Gauthier.

The UVic competition is sponsored by Dentons, one of the largest law firms in the world and a generous supporter of UVic Law students.
