Law Students find Success at International Mooting Competition

At the beginning of November law students Andrea Carbone (LLM), Sadyant Sasiprabhu (LLM) and Simon Weber (PhD) flew to Boston together with their coaches Ricardo Gerhard Turma (LLM) and Farnush Ghadery (PhD) to participate in the final rounds of the Foreign Direct Law Investment Moot at Suffolk University Law School.

The competition has been running for some years now, each year at a different university, and the global rounds attract students from universities from all over the world. The King's team had been preparing for the competition since June of this year and had already concluded the written part of the competition, when they arrived in Boston. At the global rounds, they underwent four different rounds of mooting against universities from Australia, Argentina and France. The team achieved great personal results, with one of the advocates, Andrea Carbone, even being ranked 18th among the hundreds of participating advocates as part of the competition. Overall, the competition was a great way for the team to work on their advocacy skills as well as to network with like-minded students and established arbitrators.
