Ian Fletcher International Insolvency Law Moot Competition 2020

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. 

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 which will take place on 7- 9 February 2020 in London.

The Fletcher Moot welcomes universities from around the world to participate in a mooting competition dealing with international insolvency litigation. Held in the offices of global professional firms at More London Riverside, 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 the final oral rounds in London. If your team is successful in the first 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 GBP500 applies to teams who qualify for the oral rounds in London.
