Wendi Werren and Jeremy Sentman

NIU College of Law second-year students Jeremy Sentman and Wendi Werren reached the national semifinal round of the American Bar Association (ABA) Law Student Division Negotiation Competition, held on February 3-4, 2017 at ABA Headquarters in Chicago. The Northern Law team was the runner-up in the Midwest Regional competition, allowing them to advance to the national competition. Sentman and Werren finished first in the preliminary round of national competition to earn a spot in the national semifinals. The competition began with nearly 200 teams from throughout the country, and the Northern Law team made it to the final 16.

"Although they did not advance to the final round, they impressed the judges and the other competitors with their negotiation skills, preparation and teamwork," said Professor Alan Boudreau, the team's coach. "As their coach, I am immensely proud of the hard work, dedication and professionalism they showed throughout the competition. They truly represented the best of the College of Law."
