Call for Arbitrators – 2019 Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) International Arbitration Moot
The University of Miami School of Law will be hosting the 2019 Global Rounds of the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) International Arbitration Moot competition on its campus from November 7-10, 2019. The FDI Moot is an annual competition that helps future lawyers attain a practical understanding of the issues that arise out of obligations between host States and foreign investors. This year’s hypothetical, which is set under the ICSID Rules, addresses interesting issues relating to provisional measures, denunciation of the ICSID Convention, multi-party claims, damage calculation and whether blocking of a social media platform/website amounts to a treaty breach. This event – held for the first time in Florida – will bring to Miami about 350 students, coaches and arbitrators from around the globe interested in international dispute resolution. It will provide a great opportunity to highlight Miami’s growing importance as an arbitration hub as well as Florida’s growing community of experienced international arbitration practitioners. The FDI Moot schedule will include several social and networking events. If you are interested in serving as a volunteer arbitrator, please register here (once you sign up, make sure to indicate your availability for the Global Rounds in Miami).
