Our London office is pleased to be hosting the White & Case London Vis Pre-Moot 2019. After the success of last year's Pre-Moot, we are this year expanding the London event to include a third round of pleadings. As with last year, teams will be invited to a welcome drinks reception the evening before and will plead before a diverse panel of arbitrators. We hope to make this year's event another success and we look forward to welcoming all participant teams and their coaches and all volunteer arbitrators.
In addition, the London office will be hosting the White & Case Vis Colloquium 2018 in conjunction with the Paris and Franfurt offices. This presentation will discuss some of the issues in the moot problem to prompt thinking (without giving any answers) and will offer some practical tips on how to research the moot problem. The speakers will also draw form their experiences on drafting persuasive written submissions. For more information about the White & Case Vis Colloquium, please click here.

If you wish to volunteer as an arbitrator at the event, please register here.
