The team was given a complex commercial dispute resolve including issues under the Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG), lost profits and the appropriate remedies for a breach of contract. For the pleadings, the team appeared and argued its case before a panel of three arbitrators, each round including a number of esteemed academics and practitioners.
The team had to pass through several preparatory pre-moot rounds throughout Europe before the main event, including the ICC Pre-Moot in Paris where half the team placed second, and the Heidelberg and LSE pre-moots which were won by the other half of the team. In Vienna, they triumphed over teams from the likes of the University of Munich, Columbia Law School, and the Chinese University of Hong Kong to reach the semi-finals. Taylor Gray and Jack Davies were also given honourable mentions for best individual oralist.
The team comprised of: Jack Davies, Jovana Nedjelkov, Reuel Baptista, and Taylor Gray, who thoroughly enjoyed the experience of competing and meeting other law students from around the globe. They were supported by coaches, Nikolai Santamaria, and Thom Clark. A huge congratulations is in order for the incredible achievement of our team at this prestigious event.
