Dispute Resolution Board members Drew Trautmann and Shannon Walker won the William & Mary Negotiation Tournament, hosted remotely by William & Mary Law School March 6-7, 2021.

This was the fourth time in a row that Stetson has won the William & Mary Negotiation Tournament. In truly poetic fashion, the fourth No. 1 team was coached by alumna Allison Belanger JD ’18 of the first No.1 team, together with alumnus Bill Greiner, JD ’07. 

Although Drew and Shannon are experienced competitors in Trial Team and Arbitration (Drew) and Mediation (Shannon), this was the first negotiation competition for either of them. 

Other Dispute Resolution Board members, including Abigail Dean, Bailey Peterson, Alina Evans, and Carlton Robinson, also had a strong showing at the competition, with the team of Abigail and Bailey advancing to the semifinal rounds.
