The 2016 Mock Case (English) for the 5th ICC Lex Mercatoria Moot (English Chapter) is now available at the official web-site of the ICC Lex Mercatoria International Commercial Arbitration Moot (English Chapter).

The case was prepared by the ICC International Court of Arbitration.

As a member of the Organizing Committee of the Competition – Mr. Vladimir Khvalei (Vice-President of the ICC International Court of Arbitration, Partner at Baker & McKenzie) told BILA that the 2016 Case Problem is based on a true story connected with the severe damage to the luxury yacht because of the alleged defect in the door-locking mechanism.

As Mr. Khvalei also noted “The material problem focuses on relations between the letter of credit (L/C) and the underlying contract, bank’s obligations to pay under the L/C in case of the alleged forgery of signature. Procedural issue would arise from a possibility of extending the ICC arbitration clause in the main contract to the bank by making reference in the L/C, as well as relations between the two arbitrations arising out of the same set of facts, but between different entities.”

Competing team members will have a unique opportunity to feel being a real dispute resolution lawyer. The teams will represent their clients in the arbitral proceedings conducted under the ICC Arbitration Rules.
