Jones Day lawyer Elza Dauletshina coaches team to moot court win in Vienna
In his opening speech at the VIII St. Petersburg International Legal Forum on May 16, 2018, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said: "I'm very happy that this year our team of Russian students won the biggest international legal competition in commercial arbitration named after Willem Vis for the first time competing against 360 other teams. This is a very good result. This achievement is an occasion for a certain pride. I am confident that this will not be the last victory." In congratulating Elza and her team during an award ceremony at the forum, the Russian Justice Minister Alexander Konovalov said: "The team of young Russian lawyers won a prestigious competition, which in fact is an analogue of the Nobel Prize for young people."
