Burma - Vis Moot Oral Advocacy Training

December 15, 2020 - December 16, 2020

CLDP launched Phase I of the 2020-21 Willem C. Vis International Arbitration Moot (the Vis Moot) advocacy training with four Burmese universities. The Vis Moot is the premier commercial law moot in the world. The Q&A session simulated the question and answer process that occurs during a moot competition, with CLDP advisors asking each student sample questions. This session provided the students an opportunity to receive live feedback to help them prepare for the Myanmar National Vis competition in February 2021. Through the National competition, CLDP selects the best oralist who will receive a virtual internship with an arbitration center in the Asia-Pacific region.

PPPs provide an innovative​ financing approach to developing major infrastructure projects across the globe. The webinar series covered concepts including PPP structure, payment mechanisms, project agreements, financing agreements, common contract clauses, and public support mechanisms. Each webinar topic was followed by a discussion group one week after the webinar was delivered. UDA received these trainings weekly from October 27th, 2020 to February 9th, 2021. CLDP’s collaboration with UDA of Sri Lanka is part of its ongoing technical assistance under the Infrastructure Transaction and Assistance Network.
