National Law University Delhi (NLU Delhi) and Herbert Smith Freehills (HSF) are pleased to announce the NLU Delhi-HSF International Negotiation Competition (INC) to be held on 09-11 September 2022.


The seventh edition of the International Negotiation Competition, jointly organised by Herbert Smith Freehills LLP and National Law University, Delhi, will be held at NLU Delhi from 09 – 11 September 2022. The HSF-NLUD International Negotiation Competition is the first of its kind in India. It is an invite-only competition which aims at providing opportunities to students of top law schools of the world to hone their negotiation skills and compete in an international business-like environment.

The participants in the competition assume the role of international lawyers representing their clients in a series of negotiations with the other party. The negotiation simulations closely imitate real life examples with a common set of facts known to all participants, and confidential information known only to the participants representing a particular side. Teams submit a negotiation plan prior to the Competition, and then discuss these plans with the other party in negotiation sessions that last for eighty to ninety minutes.


In the sixth edition of the competition (2019), the University of Oxford emerged as the overall winner. Over the years, the other winners have been –
· 2018 (fifth edition)- West Bengal National University of Juridical Sciences Kolkata (NUJS)
