About Foreign Direct Investment International Arbitration Moot :
Increasing international investment, the proliferation of international investment treaties, domestic legislation, and international investment contracts have contributed to the development of a new field of international law that defines obligations between host States and foreign investors and refers to internationalised procedures (e.g. ICSID) for resolving related disputes. These disputes involve not only vast sums, but also a panoply of rights, duties, and shifting objectives at the juncture of national and international law and policy. The FDI Moot helps future lawyers attain a practical understanding of these issues. The case and hearings offer a unique forum for academics and practitioners from around the world to discuss developments – and assess emerging talents. The FDI Moot spans approximately six months each year in two phases, written memorials for claimant and respondent and the hearing of oral argument with regional rounds for Asia Pacific (Seoul), South Asia (New Delhi), and Africa (Nairobi), and pre moots in Budapest, St Petersburg, Sao Paulo and Warsaw.
The Registration Fee is €700 for teams from High and Very High HDI Countries, €450 for those from Medium HDI Countries and €225 for those from Low HDI Countries, based on the UNDP Human Development Index. The Registration Deadline is 31 May.
The FDI Moot administers three Regionals: Asia Pacific in Seoul, South Asia in New Delhi, and Africa in Nairobi. Teams from relevant countries will receive appropriate prompts when registering.
After completing all the registration steps, you will be able to manage your team on the website (update team data, add team members, submit clarification requests, upload memorials …).
