February 27, 2006

Fordham Dispute Resolution Society Members Kim DiLorenzo ('07) and Jarret Hova ('07) earned first place in the 2006 ABA Regional Representation in Mediation Competition.  The team will advance to the National Competition held this April in Atlanta. 

The competition was held February 25–26 at Fordham Law School.  Schools from across New York state competed in the regional event, one of ten held around the country. Fordham team Mark Torres ('08) and Kristin Hiensch ('06) received third place honors in the competition.

The ABA's Representation in Mediation Competition, in which law students role-play as advocates and clients in a mediation setting, measures how well students model appropriate preparation for and representation of a client in mediation.

Fordham Dispute Resolution Society affords students the opportunity to gain skills in the field of alternative dispute resolution. Fordham is a recognized national leader in alternative dispute resolution, and the School's program has been ranked 15th in the nation by U.S. News and World Report.
