Pepperdine Law students Lerae Etienne and Olivia Scott recently competed in the National Basketball Negotiation Competition at Fordham Law School in New York. The Competition consists of a simulated trade negotiation using real-life scenarios and NBA teams and players. Additionally, competitors compete in a simulated negotiation of a marketing and endorsement contract for an up-and-coming NBA player. Lerae and Olivia successfully negotiated in their client’s best interest to win the marketing and endorsement during their round of the competition. Straus supports the Entertainment Media & Sports Law ADR competition teams, under the direction of Professor Maureen Weston.
