The Ian Fletcher International Insolvency Moot encourages our best and brightest students around the globe to learn about international insolvency law and international commercial litigation.

The competition poses a hypothetical problem to challenge students' appellate advocacy skills. There is one qualifying written round, and the oral round finals will be held in Singapore (likely in February).

The competition is dedicated to raising the profile of insolvency and restructuring within the university curriculum. Students will have a chance to engage with their peers, judges and members of international insolvency bodies.

The Ian Fletcher Moot also provides an avenue for academics, judges and a diverse range of insolvency experts to collaborate in mentoring the next generation of lawyers.

The team will consist of up to four members made up of senior and junior counsel and instructing lawyer or researcher.

The 2019 Fletcher competition will be held in Singapore.
