VIS EAST MOOT
The Vis East Moot Competition is the sister competition to the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot in Vienna. Given the continuous and rapid expansion of the economy in Asia, international commercial transactions and, inevitably, cross-border disputes in Asia are on the rise. The Vis East Moot provides law students, academics, and professionals with a similar exposure to, and experience in, international arbitration and trade law as the Vis Moot in Vienna, but with an Asian context.

What People Say About the Vis East
Partner, Withersworldwide (Hong Kong), President of the Moot Alumni Association
I represented Loyola Law School in Los Angeles. The moot led me to so many amazing opportunities. I worked in Paris for over a year at Orrick and then at the ICC. Now with CPR and who knows what’s next. I was asked to coach the team from NALSAR University of Law Hyderabad, India for the next Vis, 2022; the team competing in Vienna. The Vis was the best academic/career decision I made. Thank you for making it possible.
