Breakout Session with Counsel

Noon – 4:00 p.m

Mixed teams of NYU, MIT, Columbia and Harvard students will discuss key concepts in the
Loan Modification Agreement in a group setting, and then work privately with their attorneys
to discuss why certain provisions in the agreement aren’t workable for them, what revisions
are required, AND WHY.


Negotiation Session with Counsel and Celebrity Judges / Closing Remarks

4:00 – 6:15 p.m.

Two parallel negotiations will occur between the Borrower and Lender teams. Only the
students will negotiate; counsel can comment on what they’ve heard after the students’
arguments have been made and the moderator ends discussion of a particular provision. Our
Celebrity Judges will then offer valuable feedback on the quality of the students’ arguments
and perspective on current industry norms for negotiated outcomes.
