Prof. Lloyd Bonfield
Each year Pace Law School in conjunction with the University of Vienna hosts an international competition (over 250 law schools participate) in which students are given a hypothetical business transaction which has gone wrong, and for which an arbitration has been arranged. The course would prepare the ‘team’ for the competition. The brief is submitted in December; a reply brief is submitted in January; participation in the moot at Easter. The ‘team’ is indeed a team. Students are assigned issues that emerge from the problem. Although each student is responsible for producing a part of the brief, research is collaborative. Each student critiques the sections produced by other team members. Likewise, oral presentations are critiqued.
Graded Pass/Fail with possibility of “Pass with Distinction.”
