International Commercial Arbitration Moot

Course Number: LAW 6316 Credits: 3

A course combining study of the Convention on the International Sale of Goods (CISG) with participation in the International Commercial Arbitration Moot (ICAM) program. The first third of the course is devoted to study of the CISG, at the end of which students will take an examination on the Convention. During the balance of the term, students participate in brief writing and oral arguments based on the ICAM problem for the year. The grade in the course will be determined by the grade on the CISG exam, the brief, and the oral argument. The best oralists, as selected by the professors, become members of the ICAM team and travel to Vienna in the spring to represent the College of Law. That team will prepare the Claimant’s and Respondent’s brief to be submitted to the competition. In doing so, it will rely on the briefs already prepared by the class. Because of the possibility of selection to the ICAM team, this course is open only to students who will be enrolled in both the fall and spring semesters.
