The team of three beat students from the University of Pretoria, the Johannesburg Bar School and the Chinese South West University of Political Science and Law to emerge as winners.
The Strathmore team was composed of Faith Gathoni (second year), Catherine Penda (third year) and Kimberly Mureithi (third year) who were coached by Ms Emmah Senge Wabuke, a lecturer at Strathmore and Harvard University graduate.
“We were given a task that encompassed in-depth research and planning. The opportunity to interact with CAJAC officials and leading professionals in the area of arbitration was a wonderful experience – it was an opportunity to accord us a global perspective of law,” Ms. Gathoni said.
“It is through such experiences that we may be moulded into well-rounded global legal practitioners.”
The competition brought together the best university teams from China and Africa to show how best to resolve specifically commercial international riffs.
