THE National Black Law Students Association
The purpose of the annual NBLSA Nelson Mandela International Negotiations Competition is to hone vital negotiation skills. Competition problems are selected in an effort to illuminate issues affecting the globe. Negotiating these cross-border transactions and disputes helps prepare students for negotiation in their future careers. Students will have the opportunity to receive constructive feedback from legal practitioners while interacting with other students that may have a different negotiating style. This competition helps law students become aware of and experience the unique aspects of international legal negotiations including various ethical and social norms, a broad spectrum of business practices, and the difficulty of cross-cultural communication.
The mission of NBLSA is to increase the number of culturally responsible Black and minority attorneys who excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community.
