Pre-Moots

Many Pre-Moot events are scheduled throughout the world. Teams are encouraged to participate in one or more of them, if they find it feasible to do so. The only restriction is that no team should have a practice argument against a team it is scheduled to meet in either the Vienna or Hong Kong Moot.

Requests to list a pre-moot which takes place on occasion of the 27th Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot should be sent to Ms Birgit Steinkellner (admin@vismoot.org).

All listings should follow the format:
