The University of Texas swept the American Bar Association Negotiation Regional Competition held November 4th-5th in Norman, Oklahoma. Twenty-four teams competed in this region, but it was UT team members Brandy Schnautz ('06) and Tammy Ward ('06) who brought home the regional championship with classmates Stephanie Gase ('07) and Henning Schmidt ('07) close behind in second place. This is the third time a UT team has won the regional championship in this competition, but only the first time the school has taken the top two spots in regional finals. The team is coached by UT adjunct professor John Fleming, an Austin attorney and arbitrator, and Ware Wendell, also an Austin attorney.
The regional competition was hosted by the University of Oklahoma College of Law and sponsored by the American Bar Association. Twenty-four teams from eleven regions across the nation advance to the final competition. Both of the UT Law teams will go on to compete for the national championship February 11th-12th in Chicago.
