The Problem is distributed on the first Friday in October. It is distributed by posting on the Moot web site. Registered teams that cannot access the web site are sent the problem and all subsequent correspondence by the fastest means of communication available. A memorandum supporting the position of the claimant is due in Vienna early in December. Each participating team is sent a copy of the memorandum for claimant of one of the other teams in the Moot. A memorandum for respondent is prepared in response to the memorandum received, and is due in Vienna in mid-February. The oral arguments take place in Vienna, beginning on the Saturday a week prior to Easter and closing on Thursday of Easter week. The general rounds of the oral arguments take place at the Law Faculty of the University of Vienna (Juridicum) on Saturday through Tuesday.
