Vis Practice Moot


On March 7-8, 2015, Fordham Law School’s Dispute Resolution Society hosted the Ninth Annual Fordham Vis Pre-Moot. The Pre-Moot was an exciting weekend that brought together students, arbitrators, scholars and practitioners from around the world. This year, Fordham hosted more than 140 arbitrators and more than 250 coaches and competitors from thirty-nine universities, fourteen of which are international. Students had the opportunity to hone advocacy skills and refine arguments in a mock competition in preparation for the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot, which will be held in Vienna and Hong Kong this spring. The Pre-Moot also featured a keynote address by Edna Sussman on emergency arbitrators.

The Vis Pre-Moot is part of the Dispute Resolution Society’s continual efforts to promote the principles of ADR in the international legal community. We hope that you will join us next year for the Tenth Annual Pre-Moot!
