Maurice A. Deane School of Law first-year students Amy Pimer and Kyle Schiedo recently won the St. John’s “1L Negotiation Tournament of Champions,” defeating teams from other New York-area law schools. Earlier, Pimer and Schiedo had won the internal Hofstra Law Dispute Resolution Society Negotiation Competition to advance to the St. John’s competition.

“Getting the opportunity to compete externally for Hofstra Law was a great experience,” said Pimer. “Competing with students from other schools provided a unique way to practice and further our skills as future attorneys.”

“The Tournament of Champions was a tough negotiation competition that demanded quick thinking and cooperation,” said Schiedo. “It was a competition that couldn’t be won alone, and Amy and I were proud to represent Hofstra Law and proud to win the competition for our school.”

The Dispute Resolution Society also hosted an internal second-year competition, which was won by Matthew Kelly and Nina Marinaro.
