International Legal Competition

Students from the University of Maastricht won the First International Arbitration Competition in Warsaw, organized for law students by the Court of Arbitration at the Polish Chamber of Commerce and the European Legal Studies Institute in Osnabrück.

The finals were held Nov. 8-9 in Warsaw with teams from universities in the United States, Russia, Germany, the Netherlands, Hungary, and Poland. The winners were students from the University of Maastricht, the Netherlands while teams from the University of Silesia in Katowice and the Jagiellonian University in Cracow came in second and third respectively.

According to Prof. Fryderyk Zoll from the University of Osnabrück and the Jagiellonian University, who was one of the competition organizers and judges, the judges found it hard to pick just one winning team, because the contestants did so well during simulated trials. “The young lawyers showed both vast knowledge and resourcefulness which are sure to pay off in their future careers,” he said.

The competition was divided into two stages. The teams were first tasked with drawing up a claim and a reply to a claim. The eight teams with the highest scores qualified for the next stage with simulated hearings during which they acted as the authorized representatives for either the claimant or the respondent and presented their arguments to a panel of adjudicators.
