2014 Annual Williston Competition
Winners of the 61st Williston Negotiation Competition, Harvard Law School’s annual contract negotiation and drafting competition for first-year law students, were announced on Monday, April 14, 2014.
2014 winners are:
Best Contract Overall: Albert Chen, Petra Plasilova, David Victorson, and Ilan Stein
Best Representation of Hanford School of Law: Jonathan Holbrook and Thomas Chapman
Best Representation of Committee on Outside Activities: Andres Caicedo and Alice Nofzinger
The Williston Competition presents participants with a complex business problem and charges them with representing a client in negotiations. The goal is to arrive at an agreement and reduce that agreement to writing. This year, 68 students participated.
Over the course of a week, students representing the Hanford School of Law and a group of Hanford professors negotiated and drafted contracts related to the professors’ abilities to engage in online teaching endeavors. Congratulations to all participants!
