The FDI Moot is a fantastic way for law students to gain experience in the ever-growing field of arbitration. The competition focuses on international investment disputes, specifically cases involving an investment by a private investor in a foreign state, and includes written memorials and oral arguments.
In 2013, 50 law school teams participated in FDI, representing many countries including Argentina, Australia, Brazil, China, Columbia, England, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Japan, Poland, Russia, Serbia, Spain, South Korea, the United States, and Vietnam. Regional rounds took place in India and South Korea. The top three teams from each regional advanced to the international round in Frankfurt, Germany. The regional competitions for next year’s FDI Moot will take place in Seoul, New Delhi and Buenos Aires, with the final round in Malibu, California.
