In 2019, the Competitions Portfolio will be running the State Party Negotiation Competition for the second time. In particular, it aims to add an international perspective to negotiation and to further explore some international law issues that are not covered in the International Humanitarian Law Moot. This Competition is a fantastic opportunity for students to grapple with an area of international law that they may not have necessarily studied at MLS. That being said, no prior knowledge is expected or required to participate!
Congratulations to Ilia Tsirogiannis and Linny Ng for winning the 2018 State Party Negotiation Competition. Congratulations to Jonty Bean and Jake Fava who were runner up of the Competition.
