When is it?


The INC 2017 takes place in Oslo, Norway. We are excited to welcome you the last week in June.


What are the objectives of the INC?


  • Promote greater interest among law students in legal negotiation.
  • Provide a means for law students to practice and improve their negotiating skills in cross-border transactions and disputes.
  • Enable law students to meet law students and lawyers from other countries.
  • Provide law students with a critique of their performance from experienced legal negotiators.

How is organized?


  • Three weeks in advance: The teams receive the cases (negotiating problems).
  • Day 1: Prominent lectures from around the world present a Master class on negotiation.
  • Competition days: Each team negotiates international transactions or the resolution of international disputes with each other. There will be 3-4 competition rounds in English language (one is usually a multiparty negotiation) for each team. The competition judges provide feedback, coaching and decide which team has demonstrated the best legal negotiating skills.


Who will be there?


  • Competitors: Law students, who won the respective national competitions in their countries. Expected are 30 teams from all the world.
