The date for the Sixth LLM International Commercial Arbitration Moot Competition was recently announced and registration for interested participating law schools is on-going. The date for the next competition is April 13-14, 2018. This annual moot competition is hosted by the American University Washington College of Law's Center on International Commercial Arbitration.
Last year's winner is from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, Yeshiva University. Cardozo Law is a relatively small law school compared to its competitors. However, it proved itself a worthy opponent and emerged as the winner in the fifth year that the competition was held. Other contenders were LLM students at the American University Washington College of Law, UC-Berkeley Law, Brooklyn Law School, Fordham Law, Georgetown University Law Center, Northwestern Pritzker School of Law, USC Gould School of Law and University of Texas School of Law, to name a few.
The LLM International Commercial Arbitration Moot Competition is open only to LLM students. It is designed to foster the study of international arbitration to resolve investment and international business disputes. So far, only the schedule of the 2018 event has been announced. More information will be provided in the coming weeks, including the moot problem that will serve as the topic for discussion in the competition. To be eligible, the members of the team must be currently enrolled in an LLM program of the law school they represent.
Winning this competition looks great on your CV, and Cardozo Law is the competition's defending champion. Cardozo Law would be a wise choice for any law student or legal professional who wants to take an LLM degree.
