This international mooting competition is unique. It will focus on the principles and significance of computational law, including: artificial intelligence; automation of trust; data governance; privacy protection; accountability of algorithms; and blockchain. It will be conducted entirely online.
The aim of this moot is to develop professional skills in written and oral advocacy, including addressing some of the particular challenges that arise when using video conferencing technology in the courtroom and in international arbitration. Participants will also gain a deeper appreciation of the professional and substantive issues raised by disruptive technologies and the law, including the application of foreign law. Most importantly, this competition will foster team work, collaboration and the application of both substantive and procedural law in a practice-authentic context.
The winning team will be offered a week-long internship with Herbert Smith Freehills in one of its global offices, including return economy airfares and accommodation.
