Texas Tech Law Negotiation Team Takes Second Place at National Competition

For the second straight year, a Texas Tech University School of Law negotiation team has earned a second-place finish at the Entertainment Law Negotiation Competition, hosted by Southwestern Law School Oct. 1-2 in Los Angeles, Calif. The team of second-year (2L) students Thomason Bush and Mischeka Nicholson, coached by professors Nancy Soonpaa and Wendy Humphrey, placed second among the 24 teams in the 2011 competition.

The Entertainment Law Negotiation Competition was created in 2010 and provides the opportunity for law school students from around the country to develop their negotiation skills, gain competitive experience and build team dynamics. The competition also provides an opportunity for law students specifically interested in pursuing a career in entertainment law to network and experience Los Angeles and Hollywood, the heart of the entertainment industry.
