Cromwell success in Negotiation Grand Final

Just before the mid-semester break Madeleine Jones and Zak Cassells (Old Boy) competed in the QUT 2018 Clayton Utz Negotiation Competition. This competition is designed to test the negotiating skills of law students in a practical environment, preparing them for their future legal professions.  

Last year the pair competed in the competition as first years and progressed as far as the semi-finals, however;  this year  were awarded runners-up after defeating 50 other teams. The grand final was held at Clayton Utz's offices (a leading Australian law firm) in Brisbane on Tuesday 27th March, and despite coming away without the trophy, the pair are extremely proud of their efforts. They were inspired by the winners and encouraged by the representatives from Clayton Utz to continue competing. 

Madeleine is currently in her second year of a Bachelor of Law (Honours)/Bachelor of Behavioural Science degree at QUT and Zak is also in his second year of a Bachelor of Law (Honours) at QUT, whilst also studying French at UQ. We wish the pair success in the future and can't wait to see if they can take out the ultimate prize next year!
