At the invitation of the American University of Iraq-Baghdad (AUIB), a group of four students from the College of Law participated as judges in the international commercial arbitration competition. The event was attended by the Minister of Justice and a number of Iraqi and foreign personalities and law specialists in the American University in Baghdad.
