Foreign Direct Investment International Arbitration Moot (FDI) is a student moot court competition in investment arbitration, comprising more than 100 teams from the universities all around the world.
The teams argue the case based on the mock dispute between a foreign investor and a host state that addresses most topical issues of jurisdiction and merits (standards of protection of foreign investors in investment treaties). There are usually 5 legal issues to analyze, more information: http://fdimoot.org/
