We are honoured to present to you the first Polish arbitration moot court organized by the Lewiatan Court of Arbitration and Young Arbitration Practitioners in Poland (YAPP), which is addressed to the trainees of the Polish advocates’ and legal advisors’ bars. The first edition of the competiotion tooke place in 2012.
Lewiatan Arbitration Moot Court is a type of moot court competition consisting of a simulation of a trial before an arbitration court based on a fictitious statement of facts. The participants become the parties’ counsels, prepare the strategy for conducting the case and the relevant written statements, and represent their clients during the trial. The long tradition of moot courts confirms the effectiveness and success of such a form of legal education. The organizers were particularly inspired by the success of the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot, the greatest world moot court dealing with international commercial arbitration, addressed to students of law.
The competition is open to the trainees of Polish advocates’ and legal advisors’ bars. Each team may consist of 2-4 members. The competition is divided into two parts: a written one and an oral one. The final and prize-giving washeld in May at an Arbitration Picnic organized yearly by the Lewiatan Court of Arbitration. Among the winners’ prizes is the chance to participate in Vienna Arbitration Days 2015, founded by the Moot Partner - Vienna International Arbitral Centre.
All details are stated in the Rules, which together with the Registration Form is available on the Polish website.
