About the FDI Moot Cases

Each year's FDI Moot Case Committee is selected the preceding year and begins its work in June. Liaising with the FDI Moot's Advsiory Board, in particular Mr Usoskin and Mr Martini, and its Directors, the Committee develops a factual and procedural context and the issues to be argued in the competition. It submits a concept and then first draft to review boards of academics and practitioners. The revised draft is then approved, proof-read and formatted by the end of the year, and then published.

The Case 2020

The 2020 cases involves the (early) phase-out of a coal-powered electricity generation plant in which the claimant bank has been assigned an interest upon the default of the original operator and its guarantor. The phase-out resulted from the REIO to which the respondent state belongs issuing measures, with which its member states must comply according to the REIO’s organisational rules, to meet climate targets. The Case will be published in early February.
