10 Apr 2019
Between 31st March - 7th April 2019 CIArb was present at the Sixteenth Willem C. Vis East International Arbitration Moot (the Vis East Moot).
CIArb was there to promote its free Student Membership which gives students interested in arbitration access to useful and practical resources to support their studies and develop careers in international arbitration. CIArb is proud to support the Vis Moot Competition and will be also present at the 26th Vis Moot in Vienna between 12 and 18 April 2019.
The Willem C. Vis East International Commercial Arbitration Moot is a competition for law students from all countries. It runs in parallel with the Willem C Vis Moot in Vienna and is based on the same ideals, using the same problem and substantially identical Rules. The Moot involves a dispute arising out of a contract of sale between two countries. At least one country is a party to the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. The contract provides that any dispute that might arise is to be settled by arbitration in Danubia, a country that has enacted the UNCITRAL Model Law on International Commercial Arbitration and is a party to the Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards. The arbitral rules used change from year to year. This year's rules are The UNCITRAL Rules.
CIArb would like to congratulate the Winner of the 16th Vis East Competition - University of Amsterdam and all of the participating teams on their fantastic performance in the oral rounds in Hong Kong. We wish best of luck to all of the teams which are currently on their way to Vienna and look forward to seeing you there.
