After three successful editions, Konrad & Partners is pleased to announce the organization of the fourth edition of its “Arbitrators’ Quest  – Konrad & Partners´ CEE and SEE mock trial” which will take place in Vienna on 17 May 2018

International arbitration is a specialized field of work that requires not only expert knowledge, but also intense practical experience to master. As such, while a firm understanding of the legal concepts and theories constitutes an indispensable basis for a successful career in this field, insight into the every-day work of an arbitration practitioner can give prospective lawyers a considerable edge.

We are committed to fostering future talents and want to serve as an interface for high potentials between theory and practice.

Established in 2015, our mock trial aims at providing students and young professionals in the field of international arbitration an opportunity to gain insight into and first-hand experience with situations and matters typically arising in international arbitration disputes, under the supervision of, and in close cooperation with, experienced practitioners as well as renowned scholars.

Based on their written and oral performance, the winner will be elected from amongst the participants who will be offered a paid two-month internship with the Konrad & Partners Arbitration Practice Group in Vienna.

The competition is open to students, graduates and young professionals with interest in international arbitration. We particularly encourage students and young professionals from the CEE and SEE regions to apply for one of our places in the mock trial.

Applications shall be submitted on or before 26 February 2018 via e-mail to Ms Eugenia Mocanu (e.mocanu @ konrad-partners . com) and must entail the following information and documents:

- A personal statement setting out the applicant´s motivations for applying for participation and for the internship;

- A detailed curriculum vitae;

- An academic paper prepared by the applicant with regard to the topic of "The benefits of a single tier court review of abritral awards". The paper’s length should be in the range from 1000 to 1500 words. Applicants should refer to the legal situation in their home countries, also taking into consideration international arbitration law. Papers are expected to meet international academic standards. Findings should be supported by references and footnotes.

The quality of the application documents, in terms of both substance and form, will be taken into consideration for the selection of participants and the overall evaluation of their performance during the mock trial. 

Selected participants will be contacted at the beginning of March 2018.
