The judges were extremely impressed with the team\'s professionalism, knowledge of the law and arbitration skills. The team left a positive impression of Pace Law School\'s Advocacy Program with the competitors and judges involved in the competition.
Jared Hand is a Graduate of Pace Law School and competed on the Baseball Arbitration Team for two years while studying before becoming the team\'s Coach and a member of Welby, Brady & Greenblatt, LLP.
The Competition\'s main goal is to provide participants with the opportunity to sharpen their oral and written advocacy skills. This competition is unique in that it permits law students to sharpen these skills within the specialized context of Major League Baseball\'s salary arbitration proceedings. This year teams from across the country competed for two days in simulated salary arbitrations modeled closely on the procedures used by Major League Baseball.
