  • Arbitration Law


Despite the early Saturday morning rain and clouds that dripped with invitation to stay inside, a group of forty Penn State Law students and fifteen lawyers recently gathered at Lewis Katz Hall in Carlisle for an all-day marathon – not to train physically but mentally in the Third Annual Negotiation Marathon, created by Professo
On Saturday Lewis Katz Hall in Carlisle was home to a little March Madness of its own when forty-four students and twenty lawyers gathered for the second annual Negotiation Marathon at Penn State Law. Organized by Professor Nancy Welsh to sharpen students’ negotiation skills, the event provided an opportunity for students to receive direct feedback from talented and trusted negotiators. 
On Saturday, March 24, Penn State Law will host the third annual Negotiation Marathon from 10:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Lewis Katz Hall, Carlisle, Pa.

Immigration law is notoriously complex and deadline-driven, but the need for legal help far exceeds what many immigrants can afford. Hunhoff helps address that divide as an intern at the Pennsylvania Immigration Resource Center, a nonprofit organization that provides legal and education resources to detained populations in Pennsylvania.
