In the elimination rounds, the order in which the teams are listed in each match does NOT indicate their roles as Claimant or Respondent. In the Round of 16, between the teams paired in each match, the team whose alias is first alphabetically shall have the role of Claimant; in the quarterfinals, such team shall have the role of Respondent; in the semifinals and 5th place matches, such team shall have the role of Claimant; in the final and 3rd place match, such team shall have the role of Respondent.
In the elimination rounds, the tribunals shall determine each match by a majority decision (not aggregate advocate scores). In the Round of 16, quarter-finals and semi-finals, the tribunals shall announce each match winner in the hearing room (so the teams can proceed to their next hearings); in the 5th, 3rd and 1st place matches, the arbitrators shall communicate the winners to the secretatriat (so the winners may be announced in the awards ceremony).
