tralac intern participates in the Foreign Direct Investment Moot, November 2017
The 2017 Foreign Direct Investment Moot is an international arbitration moot court competition, open to university students (further details are available at http://fdimoot.org).
This year the world oral round of the competition took place at the Law School, Suffolk University, Boston, Massachusetts, USA from 2-5 November.
The Moot provides an opportunity for students to engage the increasingly complex realm of investment governance, including investment laws, treaties and agreements and investment contracts.
The students gain practical experience of the procedural aspects of investment dispute resolution, in particular arbitration.
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.
tralac intern, Taragwa Nyang’anyi, participated with the team from the University of Barcelona, where he completed his law degree.
