We invite university teams of 2-4 students to become part of the ADC-ICC Asia-Pacific Commercial Mediation Competition 2021. Applications close on 4 June 2021.

Who Can Apply?

The Competition is open to all students currently enrolled at an Asia-Pacific university.

  • The role of the Counsel must be taken by a law student, and the role of the Client can be played by law, business or social science students. Thus, at least one student in each team needs to be a law student. Students studying economics, business or politics are highly encouraged to be part of the negotiating team.
  • In each session, two team members actively compete against two team members from another team. A team must consist of at least two and a maximum of four students.
  • Each team can be accompanied by one or two coaches.
  • Please note that pursuant to the Competition Rules, students who have already participated in the ICC International Commercial Mediation Competition, Paris are prohibited from competing in the APCMC.
