MCGEORGE TEAM IMPRESSIVE IN RETURN TO NEGOTIATION EVENT Pacific McGeorge returned to the American Bar Association (ABA) Negotiation Competition, marking the first time the law school has entered the annual competition since 2006. Pacific McGeorge was once a formidable regional power, advancing to the nationals in 1999–2000 and 2000–2001, but in recent years student interest in the event had fallen off. Megan Donaghey, ’17, and Michael Mahan, ’15, posted the fifth-highest score out of 24 teams from California, Hawaii and Nevada that competed in the Region 9 tournament in November. “The members of the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Club deserve credit for our return to the ABA Negotiation Competition,” Professor Jeff Proske, the team’s coach, says. “Special thanks go to Professor Michael Colatrella and Mathew John, president of the student club, for their assistance in creating this opportunity for our students to participate in this important ADR competition.” Proske and Colatrella credit Associate Dean Dorothy Landsberg for finding the funds to back the team. The faculty coaches are hopeful that an even bigger group of students will try out for the team in the fall.
