Second Annual South Texas College of Law Energy Law Negotiation Competition
South Texas College of Law hosted its second annual Energy Law Negotiation Competition on Saturday, March 5 and Sunday, March 6, 2016. This competition provides students with an opportunity to develop their negotiation skills in the exciting field of energy law. Students specifically interested in pursuing a career in energy law also had a wonderful opportunity to network with experienced energy lawyers in Houston, the energy capital of the country. More than sixty lawyers from the top energy law firms and energy companies in Houston volunteered their time to judge at the competition. Every student competitor was judged by experts in the field.
The competition doubled in size since its inaugural year in 2015. For the 2016 competition, we opened the competition to schools from across the country and were delighted to welcome 22 teams representing 13 national law schools including LSU, SMU, STCL, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Texas Southern, University of Houston, St. Mary's University, University of Oklahoma, University of Wyoming, UC Hastings, University of Florida, and Tulane.
Congratulations to the final four teams!
1st place = University of Oklahoma
2nd place = UC Hastings
3rd place = Texas Tech
4th place = University of Houston
