The 3rd edition of the mock trial “Arbitrators’ Quest” organised by Konrad & Partners will take place in Vienna on May 12, 2017, with the hearing being held at the premises of Konrad & Partners’s Vienna office. The workshop aims to provide participants with hands-on experience on matters typically arising in international arbitration disputes. Supervision and close cooperation will be offered by experienced practitioners and renowned scholars in the field. The winner will be offered a paid two-month summer internship at Konrad & Partner’s Vienna office, accommodation included.

Who?

Students from the CEE and SEE regions are primarily invited to apply. Applicants are expected to have general knowledge about the arbitration process, while advanced study of academic works is encouraged.
