The Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot, held in Vienna since 1994, is one of the most comprehensive and prestigious moot court competitions internationally. Each year, around 300 law school teams comprising approximately 2,000 students, along with about 1,000 professors and practitioners as judges, participate in the competition. These teams come from prestigious law schools primarily in the United States and Europe.
The aim of the Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot is to train future legal professionals in the CISG (United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods) and international commercial arbitration, and to support their efforts in this field. Within this context, a hypothetical arbitration proceeding is conducted on an international commercial dispute involving students from various countries.
The team members who will represent our University in the Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot are selected from students who take LAW 231 Moot Court and Preparation of International Projects I and LAW 232 Moot Court and Preparation of International Projects II courses, each worth 4 ECTS credits and taught in English, every term.
