Columbia’s VIS International Arbitration Moot is looking for four 1L members for this year’s competition. The Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot is one of the most prestigious moot court competitions in the world. Each year, over 300 teams from over 50 countries
compete in the finals, hosted in Vienna, Austria.
Columbia has consistently performed well at the Vis Moot, winning the inaugural moot in 1994 and the award for best Claimant Memorandum in 2006. This past year, Columbia’s team received the Pieter Sanders Award for Best Memorandum for Claimant as well as finished in third place in the oral rounds out of 343 schools, ranking highest among all participating American schools.
In addition to sending a team to Vienna every year, Columbia competes at a number of pre-moots held at top law firms in New York and DC. Columbia’s 1Ls also participate in the annual warm-up moot at the Austrian Supreme Court.
We’ll be hosting an information session on Thursday, September 14 at 4:30 pm in JG 104. If you can’t make the info sessions and have questions about the team or the application, please reach out by email at [email protected].
We look forward to meeting you!
