Best Written Position and Best Final Speaker: Students' Success at the EAEU Dispute Resolution Competition

From the Faculty of Law, a team consisting of undergraduate students Alexandra Chobotova and Roman Abrashin took part in the competition. The students successfully passed all qualifying rounds, semi-finals and made it to the final of the international competition. The coaches were 1st year PhD students Valeria Matorina and Yana Prigoda.

The case submitted to this year's competition was a dispute between the EAEU member state Republic of Dregovich and the Eurasian Economic Commission. The case focused on the regulation of intellectual property protection, the relationship between the EAEU and the Eurasian Patent Organisation, setting aside arbitral awards and the use of artificial intelligence in arbitration, as well as interim measures by international courts.

At the final round, the team represented the applicant - the Republic of Dregović, which demanded to recognise the competence of the EAEU Court to hear the present dispute and impose interim measures, to annul the arbitral award on the grounds of the use of artificial intelligence, non-arbitrability of the dispute and contradiction to the public policy of the EAEU and the member states of the Union, as well as to recognise the actions of the Commission on referring intellectual property disputes to arbitration as inconsistent with Article 7 of the EEU Treaty. The team of the Faculty of Law showed excellent knowledge of EAEU law and public international law.

As a result, the team made it to the finals, where it won the second place. Our students were also honoured with an award for the best written position. Alexandra Chobotova became the best speaker of the final round.

The competition was judged by judges of the EAEU Court, representatives of the Eurasian Patent Office, lawyers from leading firms and scholars in the field of public international law. The judges of the written and oral stages of the competition included lecturers of the School of International Law: Professor Daria  Boklan, Associate Professors Vladimir  Talanov and Alexey  Petrenko.

We express our gratitude to the EPAM Law Office for providing conference rooms for the virtual rounds and congratulate the team and coaches on this success and wish them further victories in international law competitions!
