WilmerHale congratulates the team from Africa Nazarene University (ANU), which was awarded the WilmerHale prize as winners of the final of the 2019 Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) All Africa Regional Moot. ANU prevailed over Strathmore University.
The Tribunal—comprised of independent arbitrator Joseph Matthews, Wilson Mbugua of the University of Hong Kong and WilmerHale Partner Steven Finizio—adjudged David Salaton of ANU to have been the best advocate of the final. The best advocate of the preliminary rounds was Mishael Wambua of Strathmore University.
WilmerHale is delighted to support the FDI All Africa Regional Moot. Participating students benefit from the opportunity to advance their knowledge of international investment law and international arbitration, and to cultivate their advocacy, teamwork and legal research skills. The FDI Moot spans approximately six months each year in two phases: written memorials for claimant and respondent and the hearing of oral argument with regional or national rounds in Africa, Asia Pacific and South Asia. The global rounds of the FDI Moot will take place in Miami, Florida, in November 2019.
