This is the team registration form for the School of Law’s 2017 Representation in Mediation Competition.
All information contained on this form below MUST be fully completed for each team member, unless you do not have a teammate yet.
The 1st and 2nd place teams from our Representation in Mediation Competition will compete in the Regional ABA Competition on Saturday and Sunday in late February or early March (to be determined). If a UB team wins the Regional Competition, they will be sent to the Nationals. Please be aware that by committing to compete in our Intramural Competition, you are committing to participate in the Regional and National competitions should you advance.
At least one member of the team (preferably both) must (absent special permission by Professor Sugarman) be at the first part of the first Advocacy in Mediation class and informational session on Saturday, 1:00 to 2:15 p.m., and are welcome to stay for the whole class until 4:00 p.m.). If you are taking the one credit course, you must be present for both classes.
(NOTE: If you do not have a team member, you may still register, and we will do our best to match you up with another student in the same situation if we can.)
Once we have a list of the attorneys and mediators volunteering in the Competition, we will send those names around to try and make sure that the mediator and scoring judges in each of your individual rounds do not know you.
