Willem C. Vis Moot

Willem C. Vis Moot

The Willem C. Vis Moot is one of the biggest and most prominent moot court competitions in the world, since it involves law students from over 200 universities as well as distinguished practitioners and professors.

The competition is based on a hypothetical case which involves a dispute arising out of a sales contract with both procedural and substantive issues. In the first stage, teams submit written Memoranda, each representing one party of the dispute. In the second stage, the teams partake in the oral arguments which are held in Vienna, with opponents from different law schools throughout the world. The Arbitral Tribunals are composed of common and civil law experts in the issues concerned.

Participating in the Vis Moot is a very challenging and rewarding experience. The involvement of the teams, the knowledge and awards they can obtain holds a great amount of prestige in institutions and law firms around the globe.
