INSOL International and the International Insolvency Institute are honoured to invite your law school to participate in the Ian Fletcher International Insolvency Law Moot Competition (the Fletcher Moot), the oral rounds for this years' competition took place in a virtual online format in March 2021.
About the Ian Fletcher Insolvency Law Moot
Professor Ian Fletcher was an eminent scholar, internationally recognised for his outstanding achievements in the field of international insolvency law. When this competition was established, Professor Fletcher kindly agreed that it bear his name. His message to the inaugural participants was that it would be an intellectual tournament requiring a spirit of adventure and a dedication to scholarship. And so it has proved to be. Sadly, Professor Fletcher passed away in 2018. This competition named in his honour continues with the support of leading universities and the leading international institutions in this field.
The Fletcher Moot welcomes universities from around the world to participate in a mooting competition dealing with international insolvency litigation. The competition provides a unique opportunity for students to experience real-world court proceedings before international panels of prestigious judges.
Your law school needs to register to compete in the first round of written submissions, with the opportunity to progress to virtual oral rounds. If your team is successful in the written submissions round, our Moot Registrar will contact you to let you know that you are advancing to the final rounds. There is no cost to registering and participating in the initial written submissions round. A registration fee of GBP350 applies to teams who qualify for the virtual oral rounds. After consulting earlier this summer with law schools and with academic members of INSOL International and the International Insolvency Institute, we have decided that up to a maximum of 12 teams will be invited to participate in the virtual oral rounds based on their performance in the written submissions round.
Registration for the 2022 Ian Fletcher Insolvency Moot will open later in the summer.
