Senior Moot

Senior Moot 2019

The Senior Moot constitutes a mock arbitration. Teams will participate in two General Rounds, once for the Claimant and once for the Respondent. Teams have 22 minutes altogether to present their Client’s perspective to the Tribunal. This Competition is designed to challenge participants in a way the Junior Moot does not, by adding components of legal research as well as an increase in speaking time. Teams will be comprised of 2-4 members (maximum of two speakers and maximum of 2 researchers).
