White & Case and the Vis Moot

White & Case Vis Colloquium

Last year, to help give an introduction to the Vis Moot and the moot problem, we hosted a Colloquium led by a number of specialist international commercial arbitration practitioners from our Frankfurt, London, Paris and Stockholm offices.

We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting another Colloquium on 22 October 2019, this time also hosting students in our Brussels, Geneva and Madrid offices.

This presentation will cover the following:

  • Some of the questions raised by the moot problem;
  • Practical tips on researching the issues presented by the moot problem, including navigating the CISG and the LCIA Rules; and
  • The speakers' own experiences and thoughts on what makes persuasive written submissions.

If time permits, the presentation will conclude with a cross-office Q&A session.

No answers to, or strategies regarding, the moot problem will be given during the presentation, and all teams are referred to Article 84 of the competition rules of the 27th Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot Court Competition in this regard. The presentation is intended only to be a resource for participating teams to familiarize themselves with, and navigate their way through, the various steps involved in preparing for the Vis Moot.
