The White & Case London Vis Pre-Moot 2018

Following last year's inaugural event, the White & Case London office is again hosting a Vis Pre-Moot to assist the Vis Moot teams in their preparations for the competition in Vienna.

Ten teams from the UK and abroad will participate in two rounds of moots before the top four teams progress to the final rounds.  White & Case will invite the broadest range of volunteers from the London arbitral community (both common law and civil law lawyers) to sit as Tribunal members on the day, and all arbitrators will be provided with preparatory materials.  Like last year, it should prove to be another excellent day of mooting and competition.  

There will be a reception the evening before the event to welcome all of the teams and the London office will host a networking drinks evening after the conclusion of the competition for all of the participants and arbitrators. 

Registration details can be found below.  The deadline for team registration is 5pm (London) on Friday 5 January 2018.

We look forward to welcoming as many teams and arbitrators as possible and making this year’s instalment another success.
