NYU reached the semi-finals at the 2012 For­eign Direct Invest­ment Inter­na­tion­al Arbi­tra­tion Moot in Boston, Mass­a­chu­setts.  The Jour­nal of Inter­na­tion­al Law & Pol­i­tics had four mem­bers on the team with Won­joo Choe, Matthew Del­ja, Ben­jamin Guthrie, and Rebec­ca Shieh par­tic­i­pat­ing.  Matthew received an Hon­or­able Men­tion Award as one of the top ten oral advo­cates, while Rebec­ca also placed in the top 35 speak­ers.  NYU faced teams from through­out the world dur­ing the com­pe­ti­tion: Addis Aba­ba Uni­ver­si­ty (Ethiopia), Charles Uni­ver­si­ty, Fac­ul­ty of Lawn (Poland), Har­vard Law School (USA), Uni­ver­si­dade Fed­er­al do Paraná (Brazil), Uni­ver­si­ty of Hong Kong, Fac­ul­ty of Law (Chi­na), and Uni­ver­si­ty of Ottawa, Fac­ul­ty of Law (Cana­da).

This year’s moot prob­lem dealt specif­i­cal­ly with annul­ment pro­ce­dures in ICSID arbi­tra­tion. Near­ly 40 teams com­pet­ed in Boston, rep­re­sent­ing more than twen­ty coun­tries from around the globe.  NYU’s FDI Moot Team is coached by Chris­t­ian Alber­ti from the Inter­na­tion­al Cen­tre for Dis­pute Res­o­lu­tion and NYU alum Joce­lyn Bur­gos.  It received addi­tion­al sup­port from Pro­fes­sor José Alvarez and the Hauser Glob­al Law School Pro­gram.
