The Arbitrators’ Quest is an annual Moot Court competition where participants compete in a mock trial setting before lawyers from the Konrad & Partners’ International Arbitration Practice Group. The competition is open to students, graduates and young professionals with an interest in international arbitration. They will invite the finalists to participate in a simulated hearing at our offices in Vienna and cover their accommodation expenses. The prize for the winner is a paid two-month internship with our International Arbitration Practice Group in Vienna.

International arbitration is a specialized field of law that requires not only expert knowledge but a mastery of written and oral advocacy skills. By participating in the Moot, you will have a unique opportunity to gain firsthand practical experience in situations and matters typically arising in international arbitration disputes, with the help of our experienced arbitration practitioners.

Participants will be expected to prepare a written memorandum in support of a pre-assigned party to the dispute.
On 24 May 2019, oral arguments will take place in Vienna. The winner will be selected based on the quality and content of his or her application, written submission and oral arguments
