On 4 April 2015, CRCICA hosted the Oral Pleadings of The Annual Shalakany Law Office International Commercial Arbitration Moot (SAM). SAM is an annual competition of teams representing law schools throughout Egypt and is intended to stimulate the study of international commercial law and to promote and develop interest and skills in international commercial arbitration. The nature of the Moot is intended to lead participants to interpret the texts of international commercial law to develop an expertise in advocating a position before an arbitral panel. The Moot is designed as an educational learning program in the form of a competition. It is not intended to be a competition with material benefits.
The pleadings were divided into four teams of students coming from the Cairo University English Section Law, IDAI–Paris I-Sorbonne (Cairo University French Section Law) and Ain Shams University.
The IDAI Sorbonne team won the competition and was awarded the first prize.
