State Party Negotiation 2020

Registration for this competition is now CLOSED.

Competitors may join the 2020 Facebook group here.

Following its successful introduction in 2018, the Competitions Portfolio will be running its newest competition again in 2020: the Baker McKenzie State Party Negotiation competition. This Competition was introduced to complement the other competitions run within the portfolio. 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!

Teams compete in pairs in one preliminary round, against four other pairs. The highest scoring teams will progress to the grand final.

Preliminary rounds are held at Melbourne Law School, with the Grand Final being held at Baker McKenzie in Melbourne. Members of the public are welcome to attend the Grand Final.

If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact Lauren Ramsey at statepartynegotiation@mulss.com.
