Arbitrators’ Quest – Konrad & Partners´ Moot Court at its 5th edition
Konrad & Partners is pleased to announce the organization of the fifth edition of its Moot Court “Arbitrators’ Quest”, which will take place in Vienna on 24 May 2019.
Established in 2015, our Moot Court aims at providing students and young professionals an opportunity to gain first-hand practical experience in international arbitration with the help of our experienced arbitration practitioners. We are committed to fostering future talents and want to serve as a high-potential interface where theory meets practice.
The competition is open to students, graduates and young professionals with interest in international arbitration. The winner will be selected based on the quality and content of his or her application, written submission and oral argument. We will award the winner with a paid two-month internship with the Konrad & Partners Arbitration Practice Group in Vienna as well as the costs for his or her accommodation.
The problem for the Moot is based on an international sales contract that involves issues and facts which commonly arise in an arbitration.
Who may apply:
The competition is open to students, graduates and young professionals with an interest in international arbitration. We expect you to be reasonably familiar with general arbitration procedures.
The selection process:
We will select the top ten participants based on their written applications, which are due by 28 February 2019. In March 2019, selected candidates will be notified and provided with a case file with instructions. Participants will be expected to prepare a written memorandum in support of a pre-assigned party to the dispute. On 24 May 2019, oral arguments will take place in Vienna. The winner will be selected based on the quality and content of his or her application, written submission and oral arguments. Konrad & Partners will award the winner with a paid two-month internship in Vienna as well as the costs for his or her accommodation.
Applications will be accepted through 28 February 2019.
Submit your application to Eugenia Mocanu with the following information:
