Welcome to the Canadian National Negotiation Competition

The 2020 Canadian National Negotiation Competition was hosted by the University of New Brunswick Faculty of Law in Fredericton, NB. This was the fourth annual competition which took place at the Wu Conference Centre, February 21-22, 2020.



The Canadian Negotiation Competition was founded in 2017 to promote alternative dispute resolution, build networks across Canadian schools, and to serve as a qualifier for the annual International Negotiation Competition.


Teams of two are invited to compete from law schools across Canada to showcase their negotiation skills in a simulated setting, representing parties in a range of scenarios. Teams will be assessed not only on the result they secure for their client, but also on a range of criteria designed to reflect good lawyering skills.

The competition is a great opportunity for students to continue to build their skills, and showcase their talents. It is also a chance to advance to the International Negotiation Competition hosted in June 2020.

As the competition continues to grow, Canada remains a strong competitor internationally. Congratulations to Andrew Rintoul and Steve Lyberopoulus who recently placed 3rd overall at the 2019 International Negotiation Competition in Tokyo!

The cost to enter CNNC is $200 per team. Each school can register a maximum of 2 teams. Registration will open soon and will remain open until all spots are filled.
