The Legal Mile 2021 Competition - with a twist

A hugely exciting opportunity for any STUDENTS that follow the TNC to participate in a brand new and very novel negotiation competition.


”The Legal Mile are taking Negotiation Competitions to the Next Level… and you’re invited!”


It’s the brainchild of Lavania Xavier and the team at the Legal Mile who are using their real-world experience of dealing with clients to broaden the challenge of negotiation in a competition format.

The twist here is the need for the negotiators to first ***interview*** their clients before they enter the actual negotiation with the other parties!

I love this as it really is a fantastic twist to the generic negotiation competition formats normally found.

It’s an amazing opportunity for students, particularly those who have participated on the TNC practice workshops, to extend their practice experience.

The Legal Mile Negotiation Competition will run during the weekend of July 31st to August 1st.

To sign up for the competition fill in the Legal Mile Application Form.

Of course, like any groundbreaking competition events, there’s the need to have judges and, as it happens, yours truly was more than happy to give his support. In fact, last night we held a webinar for a number of the volunteers to have a little of the TNC insight to negotiations.

If you have any questions then do get in touch with the organisers and in the meantime please show your support.
