Clayton State University students were award winners at the 15th Annual International Intercollegiate Mediation Tournament held recently at Brenau University.
Forty teams from more than 20 schools from all over the United States competed. The Clayton State group placed eighth as an Advocate/Client Team, and 10th as a Mediation Team. The team consisted of Sia Amadu, Legal Studies major from Lithonia, Ga., and Siraaj Rhett, a Legal Studies major from Stone Mountain, Ga. They were joined by Matthew Martinez from Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene Tex.
Earlier in the season, Amadu and Rhett won the sixth place Advocate/client team award at the Brenau University Regional Mediation Tournament, and were the first and second place winners at Clayton State’s first Campus Mediation Tournament.
The Mediation Team is supported by the College of Business’ Center for Business and International Negotiation (CBIN), and the Office for Community Standards. Coaches for the team include Dr. Judith Ogden, associate professor of Business Law and CBIN Director, and Alicia Myrick, assistant director for Community Standards and Case Manager.
