About the Competition

The competition focuses primarily on oral advocacy before a panel of arbitration experts. Participants are required to submit a brief argument outline. No other written memorandum is required. The Competition alternates every year between a problem involving an International Commercial Dispute and a problem arising out of an Investment Protection Law or BIT Provision. In 2018 the problem will be based on an International Investment Dispute.
