2018-02-doc4 Ian Fletcher Moot Court Competition

The Ian Fletcher International Insolvency Law Moot aims to encourage the best and brightest students around the globe to learn about international insolvency law and international commercial litigation. The yearly competition, which recently started, poses a hypothetical problem to challenge students' appellate advocacy skills. There is one qualifying written round, and the oral round finals were held in the beautiful and vibrant city of Sydney at the University of Sydney Law School Moot Courtroom. The competition is dedicated to raising the profile of insolvency and restructuring within the university curriculum. Students will have a chance to engage with their peers, judges and members of international insolvency bodies. The Fletcher Moot also provides an avenue for academics, judges and a diverse range of insolvency experts to collaborate in mentoring the next generation of lawyers. Professor Rosalind Mason (QUT Law Faculty, Brisbane) informed me that the 2018 Fletcher Moot was a great success. The names of the final 8 teams and the award winners can be found on: www.qut.edu.au/law/about/news-events/international-insolvency-law-moot/for-teams/awards. I see teams from Canada, Australia, Singapore. Are European continental universities up to the standard to enter into this global competition?
