ADRIANA CAMPOS-KORN


1. Tell me about yourself. what do you do for a living? what do you study?

My name is Adriana, I got my law degree from American University, Washington College of Law and now I am an international trade and customs attorney.

2. What are the negotiations to you? what is the first thing that comes to your mind when hearing the term negotiations?

Negotiations to me mean that there is a conversation or set of conversations with the goal of both parties getting the best deal possible for their situation. It also means cooperation and openness in order to find out what the "best deal possible" looks like for that party. The first word that comes to mind is cooperation.

3. What was your impression after the WNR 2019?

Before the negotiation I didn't realize all of the work that went into making this event what it is and all of the research and hard work that the buddies put in. I met people who wrote the problems, translated them, tested them out. People who did the research for where competitors stayed, everything! Talking to everyone and seeing how much work went into it and how excited the buddies were to welcome us made the experience feel like more than a competition and more like an opportunity to meet lifetime friends while engaging in the negotiations of a lifetime.

4. How did you find out about the WNR? What was your motivation factor to register for WNR2019?

American sends a team to the WNR every year and it's the competition that everyone in the Transactional Law Society ("TLS") wants to be picked for. Since my first year of law school I tried to be very involved in TLS so that eventually I could attend WNR. Everyone who went loved it, it's a competition that is very well-known and prestigious and it also was an opportunity to travel and I love to travel.

5. How did the WNR and your overall negotiation experience influence your life?

Going in I wanted to travel and say I did this negotiation, but it left me with so much more. Before the competition I was very nervous (I think my buddy, Bernard, would say "I smelled nervous"), after leaving I gained so much confidence in myself, in my skills as an orator and as negotiator.









CARLOS J MICAMES MONTAVLO



1. Tell me something about yourself. What do you do for living? What do you study?

I grew up in Puerto Rico and left to study law in Washington DC at American University Washington College of Law.

2. What are the negotiations to you? What is the first thing that comes to your mind when hearing the term: ‘negotiations’?

Negotiations to me is the hope of reaching a mutually beneficial agreement with the other side. When I first hear negotiation, I think of “collaboration” because there needs to be some minimum kind of collaboration to reach an agreement. If the other side does not want to work with you, then there is no chance of reaching a deal.

3. What was your impression after the WNR 2019?

I was pleasantly surprised by the warmth of the people and the culture. The competition was also very well organized. I am honored to have been part of such a historic competition and also compete in historic areas of Warsaw like the art museum and Senate.

4. How did you find out about the WNR? What was your motivation factor to register for WNR 2019?

I found out through the Transactional Law Society, which is the organization with which I competed with. The motivating factor was the opportunity to visit a country I had never been in before and experience a new culture while testing out my negotiation skills.

5. How the WNR and your overall negotiating experience have influenced your life?

They have given me more confidence in my negotiation skills and I have made friends that I would never have made if not for the competition. I am glad to have had the opportunity to meet brilliant students from all over the world and experience the different cultures and negotiation styles.
