INSTRUCTIONS FOR STUDENT PARTICIPANTS
The Weinstein International Foundation invites you to enter this year’s International Mediation Writing Competition in Ecuador. Undergraduate students of accredited law schools in Ecuador are eligible to participate in the competition. The competition is intended to increase student interest in mediation and enhance the skill level of mediation advocacy.
The top paper in Ecuador will be awarded a cash prize of $1000 (USD).
The deadline for Submissions in Ecuador is November 30th, 2022.
The memorandum shall be sent to following email: email@example.com
* * *
Your memoranda must not exceed 2500 words, with one part (at least 60%) to be shared with the other party and the mediator and the other part to be kept confidential between you and the mediator. You may be creative in your writing style but you are not allowed to add facts that are not included in the case.
All entries will be anonymized and should be submitted in English. Entries will be judged based on criteria that test your ability to marshal facts, law and procedural history effectively, your ability to be persuasive without alienating the other side, to suggest ways that the mediator might be able to maximize the likelihood of a successful mediation and, of course, your writing ability.
