Vis Moot Info Drinks on 23 May at 4.30 – 6.00 pm in room P545 – Presentations by co-director of the moot Patrizia Netal and chair of ICC Commission on Arbitration and ADR Carita Wallgren-Lindholm

Interested in Vis Moot? Join us for discussion on what the moot is about and why to participate. The discussion will be based on presentations by co-director of the moot Patrizia Netal and chair of ICC Commission on Arbitration and ADR Carita Wallgren-Lindholm. You will also have a chance to meet the coaches of University of Helsinki and alumni mooties.

The info drinks will take place on Wednesday 23 May at 4.30 – 6.00 pm, at the University of Helsinki, in the Faculty Room P545 in Porthania, Yliopistonkatu 3, 5th floor.

Vis Moot is the biggest moot court competition in the world. The moot problem is related to international commercial law and commercial arbitration. All the teams taking part in the competition will get to take part in the oral hearings in Vienna (appr. 360 universities/ 2500 participants) or Hong Kong (appr. 100 universities). In addition, the Helsinki team traditionally takes part in many international Pre-Moots (this year Rome, Riga, Bucharest, Shanghai, Helsinki and White&Case Paris, ICC Paris and August Debouzy Paris).  Team Helsinki has been increasingly successful – this spring the team made it to the top 32 in Vienna (of participating 357 universities). In 2017, University of Helsinki won the award for the best memorandum for respondent in the Vis East in Hong Kong.
