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.
