National Labour Arbitration Competition

Mathews Dinsdale is delighted to welcome all of you to the 24th annual National Labour Arbitration Competition. This event is unique in the labour law community and we are, as ever, honoured to host it. It has grown from humble beginnings to a well-recognized mooting event, largely due to your participation.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions we are once again hosting this event virtually. We will miss the annual gathering of participants, coaches, colleagues and friends but look forward to when we can meet again safely, in person. We also recognize the effort and time invested by all the participants and coaches, particularly in the unique circumstances of these times, and we thank everyone for their flexibility and patience as we have all learned to navigate new processes.

We trust that a number of you will choose labour and employment law as your career path and hope that you will look back on this event with fond memories.

We wish all of you an enjoyable and fulfilling experience.

The Partners, Associates and Staff of Mathews Dinsdale
