PAX Moot’s von Mehren Round

The PAX Moot is a specialised moot court competition dedicated to students interested in Private International Law.

The 2021 Round of the competition is named after Arthur von Mehren, a renowned scholar of international procedure law across the Atlantic, for the 15th anniversary of his passing away.

This Round of the competition will focus on Transnational Law and Private International Law issues and will require participants to apply and handle the complexities and nuances of how international conventions and regulations interact with each other in the context of globalisation.

The case is grounded in the present challenging global events (COVID-19 virus) and involve the application of the new 2019 Hague Judgments Convention.

The competition comprises a written round and an oral round for the students. The teams will be required to address matters of jurisdiction, applicable law and parallel actions.
