A team of students from National Law University (NLU) Jodhpur has won the first South Asia regional round of the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) International Arbitration Moot Court Competition. The FDI moot is a competition on investment arbitration organized by the Centre for Legal Studies (CILS) in Austria with support from US law firm Skadden, Suffolk University Law School (Boston), Pepperdine University Law School, the German Institution of Arbitration and the Centre of European Law at King’s College London.
The first FDI moot was held in 2006. The global rounds are held every year on rotation between Boston, Frankfurt, Los Angeles and London. Suffolk University in Boston hosted last year’s competition, where a team from the University of Ottawa’s faculty of law claimed first prize. This year the global rounds will take place in Frankfurt.
