The Charleston School of Law Moot Court announced their Spring 2023 schedule on Tuesday.
The team is scheduled to compete in seven events this spring including national competitions in New York, Los Angeles, Washington, and culminating the first week of April in Vienna, Austria.
The Charleston Law Moot Court team and its volunteer coaches have begun preparing legal memoranda and oral presentations for the 30th annual Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot competition in Vienna.
“It’s like the World Cup … for law,” said international law attorney Chris Campbell in a recent story published the South Carolina Bar.
Campbell, attorney Brent Clinkscale, attorney Micah Chettah and The Honorable Kristi Harrington are the volunteer coaching staff for both the Charleston School of Law and University of South Carolina School of Law teams for the competition.
“As chair of the South Carolina Bar International Law Committee, I think it is amazing that we can help facilitate students from our law schools to engage and compete against students all over the world,” Clinkscale told the SC Bar. “South Carolina has a place in this conversation and deserves a seat at the international table.”
“I am thrilled that our students have an opportunity to argue on the world stage,” said Charleston Law Provost and Dean Larry Cunningham. “This is a great opportunity for students to sharpen their skills.”
The Charleston Law team consists of seven students, with four oralists and three brief writers.
More than 300 teams participated in last year’s competition. The event has not been held in-person since 2019, due to COVID-19 restrictions.
