Negotiation skills on show in national competition

Natalia Hill, a second year LLB (Hons) student, was part of a team which made it through to the UK National Negotiation Competition’s final stages.

The competition, sponsored by the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution and now in its 13th year, provides an opportunity for law students to practice and improve their negotiation skills.

This is the first time the University has been represented by two teams in the competition, with fellow Law student Clinton Townsend competing for the second team.

Natalia is now eligible to attend a one-day Advanced Negotiation Skills course, provided by trainers from the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution, before she takes part in national finals in April.

Mumtaz Hussain, Director of Postgraduate, Professional and Part-time Education at the School of Law, Social Sciences and Communications said: “Our congratulations go out to both Natalia and Clinton for all their hard work and great effort in the competition. Both students prepared diligently and well, and negotiated skilfully against teams from The College of Law and University of Buckinghamshire. We wish Natalia all the best for the next round of the competition.”

Students at Wolverhampton are taught negotiation skills on the elective module: Alternative Dispute Resolution.
