International Commercial Mediation Moot

About the ICC Mediation Moot

The International Commercial Mediation Competition is an annual moot mediation competition organized by the ICC ADR Secretariat.  This one-of-a-kind event gathers teams from universities and mediation experts from around the world.

The Competition consists of two parts; written and oral advocacy. During three days of preliminary rounds, competitors must apply ICC’s Amicable Dispute Resolution (ADR) Rules to solve problems devised by a special Drafting Working Group of international mediation experts. Student teams are divided into requesting party and responding party in mock mediation sessions, where individual team members act out the role of counsel and client before a mediator and two judges.

On the fourth day of the competition the eight finals will take place in the morning and the quarter-final in the afternoon. The semi-final will take place on the morning of the last day. The ICC ADR Secretariat will organise during the course of the competition a training day for the professionals to share their experience and best practises with other professionals and students. In the afternoon of the last day, two teams will participate in the final of the ICC International Commercial Mediation Competition.

Combining competition, sharing of best practices, learning and networking, this one-of-a-kind event gives participants a unique opportunity to participate in moot mediations, to explore cultural differences in international commercial mediation and to enjoy numerous social activities.

Student teams are composed of a maximum four students, and they may be accompanied by a professor or coach. The role of counsel in the mediation shall be taken by a law student. All written and oral communication during the Competition shall take place in English.

This is the first time a competing team from the Faculty of Law at the University of Belgrade will be a participant in this competition.
