Four USD School of Law students participated in LawMeet National Transactional Tournaments on February 24th. USD Law sent two teams to compete in different Regional Tournaments.
Team 1: Branden Nethken (2L) and Ryan Redd (3L) competed in Dallas, Texas (Region 6 Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law).
And team 2: Anna Limoges (3L) and Britni Summers (2L) competed in Denver, Colorado (Region 7 University of Denver Sturm College of Law website).
Participants were judged by panels of experts from transactional law practices from across the nation. Decisions were reached on how each team most adeptly negotiated a draft of certain provisions of an agreement. These negotiations required students to combine numerous lawyering skills like drafting, marking-up, various negotiating techniques, in-depth knowledge of corporate law and other facets of business law to develop innovative solutions to a legal problem.
Anna Limoge and Brittni Summers took home third place in Region 7.
The National Transactional LawMeet is the premier “moot court” experience for students interested in a transactional practice. The National Transactional LawMeet is a part of the LawMeet family of live, interactive, educational competitions designed to give law students a hands-on experience in developing and honing transactional lawyering skills.
