FDI Moot 2018
Article from: TDM 6 (2018), in Editorial
The 2018 FDI Moot final, held Sunday, 11 November 2018, in Stockholm University's Aula Magna, was won by Lomonosov State University of Moscow (1st). By edging out University of Montevideo (2nd), Lomonsov was the last team left standing out of 53 teams in Stockholm (and 118 teams when including the FDI Moot Regionals). The Tribunal composed of Lauren Aguiar (Skadden), James Hope (Vinge), and Kristoffer Löf (Mannheimer Swartling) adjudged Igor Kirillov (Lomonosov) best advocate of the final hearing.
Please join in congratulating Lomonosov State University's conquest of the 2018 Skadden Trophy.
The Thomas Wälde Advocacy Award (best advocate of the 4 group phase matches) was won by Grace Tran from the University of Ottawa. Ms Tran had the pleasure of receiving the Award out of the hands of the 2017 winner and her own 2018 University of Ottawa coach, Jolene Hansell.
West Bengal National University of Juridical Sciences was the highest ranked team (combined written and oral group phase) and recipient of the Baker & McKenzie prize (USD1500) presented by Filip Boras.
We would like to thank the many TDM/OGEMIDERs who helped us as arbitrators and memorial judges, or supported teams financially through the Wälde Fund.
