Student teams from Turkey, Germany, Switzerland, France and Scotland had the opportunity to compete in the fourth Edinburgh International Willem Vis Pre-Moot, held on 28th February and 1st of March.
The Edinburgh University Willem Vis International Commercial Arbitration Pre-moot is a mooting competition that combines procedural issues of international commercial arbitration (this year based on the ICC Arbitration Rules) with substantive law on international sale of goods based on the CISG (The Vienna Convention on the International Sale of Goods of 1980).
The Pre-Moot was based on the problem for the 22nd Willem Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot, with final rounds in Vienna in March 2015.
It aims to prepare students for their performance in the Austrian capitalwww and allowed Moot teams to plead their cases for claimant and respondent while moot arbitrators provided constructive oral and written feedback to the teams.
The Edinburgh Pre-Moot is an important step for our students in their preparation for their pleadings at the moot venue in Vienna.
It involves the help and support of a team of individuals from the legal and arbitration community.You can read more about it here.
