The fourth Fox Williams Pre-Moot organised in association with CIArb was held on 2-3 March 2019. This year the Pre-Moot welcomed a total of 16 mooting teams from 10 different countries. On Saturday, 2 March 2019 the teams had 4 general rounds which took place at CIArb HQ in Bloomsbury. At the beginning of the event, Tom Cadman (Director of Governance and Legal Services at CIArb) welcomed all of the teams, briefly introduced the mission CIArb and wished all students best of luck in their pleadings. Throughout the day, the teams were arbitrated by distinguished arbitration practitioners, counsels, judges and scholars. After the last session, Sir Michael Burton who arbitrated two general rounds gave a short talk about the art of advocacy.
Subsequently, Mercy McBrayer (Research and Academic Affairs Coordinator at CIArb) announced the Best Speaker of the Pre-Moot and two Honourable Mentions.
