CIArb members interested in volunteering as an arbitrator for this Pre-Moot, please email an expression of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org along with a brief CV by Sunday 7 February. To be accepted as a volunteer a CV must be included.
The general moot rounds will take place on 27 February, with the final rounds held on 28 February 2021. The Pre-Moot will be preceded by a panel debate for practitioners and team coaches on the topics presented in the moot problem, hosted by Fox Williams, on the afternoon of 26 February 2021. This year’s Pre-Moot boasts its largest group of participants, with participation by 20 teams from around the globe. As a result, 120 arbitrators are needed to conduct the hearings.
