ELSA Negotiation Competition

The concept

ELSA is an organisation of European law students who seek to continuously contribute to and improve the legal education of students. In accordance with these goals, ELSA International facilitates the Negotiation Competition.
The ELSA Negotiation Competition (ENC) is a simulation of a negotiation process between two parties. For this purpose, two teams consisting of two law students and young lawyers each representing a client or a party negotiate a legal dispute. These simulations will be observed and evaluated by a panel of three judges who shall be legal practitioners allowing participants to obtain advanced skills in the field of negotiation.
