The topic of the contest is commercial arbitration, with the legal basis being the The United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) rules.

What is moot court?

Moot court is a simulated hearing of a court proceedings in a particular area of law. It is a form of a contest popular among the most prestigious law schools (e.g. Harvard, Oxford, Yale) and even done in cooperation with institutions such as the UN (eg. The European Human Rights Moot Court). Organisers can choose whether they want to moot an international court, arbitrage or tribunal, and adjust the structure of the competition accordingly.

There are 2 sides of an argument: the Claimant (the party/individual stating that a wrong has been committed) and the Respondent (the party/individual denying these allegations). Throughout the moot court participants, who compete in pairs, are expected to represent each of the parties. The first round of a competition is usually a written assignment (Memorial), after which the eliminations in court begin. These proceedings are judged by attorneys/law students, who later rate the pairs, so that two best ones remains and compete in the grand finale.
