PAX Moot 2021 – von Mehren Round is a specialized moot court competition focused on Transnational Law and Private International Law issues. In this competition, participants will be able to learn and apply first-hand the complexities and nuances of how international Conventions and Regulations interact in the context of globalization. Without pleading on the merits of the case, PAX Moot participants will be given a case geared towards jurisdictional and choice of law disputes.
Private International Law, or Conflict of Laws, is the set of legal principles, devices, modes of reasoning and rules that leads to the application of different national laws in international cases, allocates jurisdiction and regulates the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments. This field of law has increasingly come to the foreground of significant multinational legal disputes, where sometimes the entire case hinges on jurisdiction, applicability of certain national regulations or cross-border effects of judgments. It now plays an important role in the area of environmental regulations, labour and human rights protections, digital transactions and other global issues.
Pax Moot 2020 – von Mehren Round will comprise of a written round and oral round.
The Registration fee is set at 100 Euros per Team.
Registration is set to open from November 30th to February 21th. The case for this year’s moot will be published on November 27th.
