The article features a team of three Maharishi University of Management (MUM) students who earned third place in the 12th Annual National Intercollegiate Mediation Tournament held at Drake Law School in Des Moines, Iowa, earlier this month—despite being from the smallest school in the tournament.

Ken Ault, Elizabeth Fowler, and Josh Wilson earned their third-place trophy in the Mediation category, while Mr. Wilson also received an award as All-American Mediator for finishing sixth in the individual competition. In addition, the team as a whole placed eighth in the Advocate/Client category.

''This result showed the outstanding quality of the team,' said team coach Vicki Alexander Herriott. ''Few teams are in the top 10 in both the Mediator and Advocate/Client categories.''

''Mediators need to be alert, calm, and supportive,'' Ms. Herriott said. ''Advocates and their clients—that is, the parties to a mediation—need to be flexible, open, and creative problem solvers. These are all qualities that grow with the practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique. We have a competitive advantage when it comes to mediation.''
