VIS EAST MOOT
The Vis East Competition is the sister competition to the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot. With the continuous rise in international commercial transactions and the inevitable resulting cross-border disputes in Asia, the Vis East provides law students, academics, and professionals with a similar exposure to, and experience in, international arbitration and international trade law as the Vis Moot in Vienna but with an Asian twist!

What People Say About the Vis East
President, Moot Alumni Association and Partner, Withersworldwide
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 Hayderabad, 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.

“The important work the Vis East Moot does training and networking future practitioners is essential to support. It performs a function like no other entity or event, and under the wise guidance of Louise Barrington it performs that function exceptionally well. Plus, the great energy, enthusiasm, and talent of the participants reminds me of why I became a lawyer myself.”
“It is a delight to immerse in the enthusiasm of university students from around the world in promoting international arbitration and enhancing their advocacy and legal skills through participation in the Vis East. It is also breath-taking to watch the scale with which those skills and devotion have grown during successive years of the Vis East and to witness the Vis East student participants associating themselves with international arbitration in their careers.”
One of the great pleasures of coming back to the Vis East year after year is to see the progress many of the schools are making toward the practice of international arbitration.
