Lawyer Skills Training Competition Teams: Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot
Students selected for the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot have the opportunity to study alternative dispute resolution in the context of international law, based on problems involving the interpretation of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. The competition takes place each spring at the University of Vienna School of Law in Vienna, Austria.
A comparable competition, the Willem C. Vis (East) International Commercial Arbitration Moot, was established in 2003-04. This competition takes place in Hong Kong.
Only those students who enroll in the International Commercial Arbitration and the CISG course in the fall semester may try out for the teams.
The success of Loyola's teams in the Vis competitions is reflected in the competition newsletters.
