This year, SU and Law School funding enabled University of Plymouth Law Society members to enter two external competitions: the Client Interviewing Competition 2023 and the CEDR Student National Negotiation Competition.

University of Plymouth Law Society (UPLS) member, Chloe Mitchell shared with us the fantastic experience and success the members had at the competitions this year...


From the funding which we have been given this year, our members have been given the opportunity to meet law students from other universities and develop skills which will greatly assist them beyond university. -- UPLS


Client Interviewing Competition 2023

"In December 2022, we hosted our internal Client Interviewing competition, at the Law Clinic, with our pairs having to provide legal advice for a variety of legal issues which our committee members and volunteers acting as clients with legal issues. The first three rounds were judged by us as negotiation officers, and lecturers from the law school who kindly volunteered to help, with the semi and finals being judged by Wolferstans Solicitors. From this competition our winners competed in the external competition and did well enough in the first round to compete in the finals at Oxford Brookes University."


I think it was really nice to mix with people from other unis, especially in the final. It was nice that it had a social element to it and it was interesting to see how students from different unis had been prepared and what tactics they used which we were then able to adopt ourselves. - -  Frieda Stark 


CEDR Student National Negotiation Competition 

"In February 2023, Womble Bond Dickinson and the Students' Union sponsored two pairs who were competing in our internal negotiation competition to compete in ithe Student National Negotiation Competition CEDR. Both pairs did really well, and we were fortunate enough to have one pair make it through to the finals. The finals this year took place in person at Exeter University."


Very grateful for the opportunity to see the diversity within the sector of how people negotiate especially learning skills from experts of how best to do it.’ - - Chloe Farmer.
