The Lagos Court of Arbitration Young Arbitrators Network (LCA-YAN) will hold its inaugural International Commercial Arbitration Moot Competition on July 28 at 1A, Remi Olowude Street, Lekki-Epe Expressway, Lagos.
The LCA-YAN is an LCA-sponsored association for practitioners, students and young members of the arbitration community.
Participating firms include AELEX, Aluko & Oyebode, Babalakin & Co., SPA Ajibade & Co., Streamsowers & Köhn, Punuka Attorneys and Solicitors, Perchstone and Graeys, among others.
Organisers said law students from tertiary institutions around the country would also be participating in the competition.
“It is expected that the LCA-YAN Moot Competition will ultimately boost practitioners’ interest in arbitration and equally improve arbitration skills and proficiency amongst young practitioners.
“The LCA-YAN Moot will provide a unique opportunity for young practitioners and students to gain exposure to diverse issues in international commercial arbitration including emergency arbitration, joinder of parties and several other contemporary issues in international commercial arbitration,” the organisers said.
