Second Fox Williams Pre-Moot Panel Debate – Friday 28 February

February 19, 2020

Distinguished speakers to address key topics in international arbitration

Next Friday 28 February, Fox Williams will host panel of distinguished speakers who will debate two key topics in arbitration: asymmetric disputes clauses; and whether the power exists to disqualify an expert. Both debate topics are procedural issues that arise in this year’s Vis Moot problem.

Chaired by Fox Williams international arbitration partner Peter Ashford, the panellists are The Rt. Hon. Dame Elizabeth Gloster DBE, PC, Marion Smith QC and Professor Denis Mouralis of the University of Aix en Provence. They will be speaking before an invited audience of international arbitration experts.

The debate is being held to mark the opening of the fifth Fox Williams Pre-Moot, taking place in association with the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, over the weekend 29 February - 1 March. This is an established event in the UK’s pre-mooting calendar for university teams preparing for the Vis Moot in Vienna. Sixteen mooting teams from UK and international universities will be participating, from universities in the UK and Europe.
