Join the 16th edition of the Frankfurt Investment Arbitration Moot Court – CIETAC Chinese (Mainland) National Rounds (Moot Court) which is scheduled on the 12 April 2024, in Beijing (hybrid format with live streaming).

In May 2023, CIETAC successfully held the 15th edition of the Frankfurt Investment Arbitration Moot Court – CIETAC Chinese (Mainland) National Rounds in person, which attracted registrations of 38 teams from prestigious universities across China, including Tsinghua University, the Peking University School of Transnational Law and Fudan University. The final was arbitrated by a Grand Panel, which is composed of Dr Sabine Konrad, founder of the Frankfurt Investment Arbitration Moot Court, The Hon Geoffrey Ma Tao-li, GBM, SC, former Chief Justice of the Court of Final Appeal of the Hong Kong SAR, Professor Anselmo Reyes, CIETAC arbitrator and Judge of the Singapore International Commercial Court, Professor Jingxia Shi, CIETAC arbitrator and Professor of the Renmin University of China, and Ms Teresa Cheng Yeuk-wah, GBM, GBS, SC, JP, CIETAC arbitrator and former Secretary for Justice of the Hong Kong SAR. Over 20,000 views from 19 jurisdictions were recorded for the final and award ceremony. These active responses have helped turn the competition into the largest scale of its similar kind in China.

The Frankfurt Investment Arbitration Moot Court (“FIAMC”) is the oldest and most prestigious moot court competition in the field of investment law. In response to the Belt and Road Initiative and with the great support from the Ministry of Commerce of China, CIETAC firstly introduced the FIAMC into China in 2019, which was reported by the Legal Daily (法治日报), the most influential and authoritative media in the Chinese legal sector. In the past years, CIETAC has further expanded the scale of the competition and held four Chinese mainland national rounds, which attracted registrations of more than 800 participants from China’s top-notch law schools.

Throughout the years, CIETAC Hong Kong Arbitration Center has been the hosting body under CIETAC for the Chinese mainland national rounds. CIETAC Hong Kong Arbitration Center is the first branch of CIETAC established outside the Chinese mainland in 2012 and has been serving as a major outreach connecting point of CIETAC to the Asia-Pacific region and a super-connector within the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.
