On April 5-6, 2019, eight teams from four universities gathered at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte for a three round mediation tournament.
After an excellent training session focused on collaborative law, the teams competed in front of judges drawn from mediation professionals in the Charlotte, North Carolina region.
Brenau competitors included Jessica Jarrett, Diamond Wood, Dejah Williams, Maddie Langford and Cassie Childress.
A Brenau University team finished first in the advocate/client category and several of the individuals on the team won awards for their work as mediators or as advocate/client teams.
Diamond Wood is the only graduating senior from this group and will be missed as the other students look forward to participating in fall mediation tournaments including the 17th Annual Brenau Invitational Mediation Tournament, which will be held Oct. 4-5, 2019, on the Brenau campus in Gainesville.
