Willem C Vis (East) International Commercial Arbitration Moot

The Willem C Vis (East) International Commercial Arbitration Moot Competition is the sister competition to the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot in Vienna. The Vis East Moot provides law students, academics, and professionals with a similar exposure to, and experience in, international arbitration and trade law as the Vis Moot in Vienna, but with an Asian context. The problem for the moot is usually based on an international sales transaction subjected to the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) and also involves procedural issues of arbitration such as jurisdiction and powers of an arbitral tribunal. Teams are expected to submit memoranda for both claimant and respondent, before participating in oral rounds. This is an excellent opportunity to explore a different form of dispute resolution and network with arbitrators and practitioners across the world.
