Wayne Law announces winners of NFL Contract Negotiation Competition
DETROIT – Students Monique Eubanks and Edwin Piner won the Wayne State University Law School NFL Contract Negotiation Competition Saturday, Nov. 23.
Lindsey LaForest and David Wakefield placed second.
The NFL Contract Negotiation Competition, which is in its second year at the Law School, is an opportunity for students to practice negotiation skills in front of practicing attorneys. Students represented either an NFL player or an NFL team and worked to come to agreement on a contract for their client. The competition is supervised by Assistant Professor (Clinical) Rebecca Robichaud and sponsored by the Law School’s Sports and Entertainment Law Society.
Judges for the competition were David W. Jones, Charles Hayden ’19, Jaime Miettinen, Deborah Schneider ’85, Elijah Simkins ’19, and Joseph G. Vernon.
Eubanks and Piner will compete in Tulane Law School’s Professional Football Negotiation Competition in January.
