Enter ICC’s International Commercial Mediation Competition

The International Chamber of Commerce’s International Center for ADR will celebrate the 10th edition of its International Commercial Mediation Competition from February 6-11, 2015. Universities and mediators can now apply to a unique event which will attract participants from all over the world.

The Competition is the only moot devoted exclusively to international commercial mediation and is open to law and business schools worldwide. It provides an excellent opportunity for the next generation of international lawyers and business professionals to hone their dispute resolution and mediation advocacy skills.

With its incredible international outreach and selective procedure, the competition has become ICC’s biggest educational event and a must-go-to event for the commercial mediation community across the globe. A series of festive activities will also take place this year to celebrate the 10th anniversary.

Throughout the Competition, university students face complex international business problems which they attempt to resolve in mediation proceedings conducted pursuant to the ICC Mediation Rules. Victoria Serigano, student and member of the team from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, United States, said: “This Competition was the best experience of my law school career. I greatly appreciated the opportunity to meet ADR practitioners and law students from around the world.”
