USD Law Students Place 2nd in Competition
Abby Leach and Anna Limoges placed second in negotiation and fourth in drafting in the LawMeets Western Regional Meet hosted by the University of Denver. They took overall second place and were the semifinalists in the regional competition.
Another team comprised of Anthony Sutton and Elliot Bloom took part in the Southwestern Regional Meet hosted by Southern Methodist University in Dallas.
In this year’s competition, the 84 teams negotiated a merger of two emerging technology companies. The drafting stage took place over two months, with students drafting term sheets, interviewing their clients and marking up opposing teams’ drafts. The regional portion of the competition culminated with live negotiations between the teams. Team members were graded on their professional persona, understanding of the issues and effectiveness in the negotiation.
“We applaud our teams’ efforts and commitment in tackling such a challenging problem, drafting and marking up the term sheets, and competing against the best teams in the Western and Southwestern conferences,” said Ramon Ortiz, who coached the teams with fellow USD law professors Allen Madison, Mike Mckey and Tom Horton.
