IAA and the Center Hosted 7th Annual NYU Vis Practice Moot at Hogan Lovells

On February 24, 2018, NYU’s International Arbitration Association and the Center for Transnational Litigation, Arbitration and Commercial Law held the 7th Annual NYU Vis Practice Moot at Hogan Lovells US LLP.

The 7th Annual Vis Practice Moot welcomed 12 teams from selected law schools from the United States and Europe as well as many distinguished professionals and academics who acted as arbitrators, including Professor Franco Ferrari, the Center’s Director.

The Practice Moot rounds aim to provide a helpful forum for the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot participants to practice their oral advocacy skills by pleading before, and receiving constructive feedback from, panels of experienced arbitrators from all around the world. The Practice Moot also enables the participant teams to meet and have a chance to plead against each other before the final rounds in Hong Kong and Vienna, where more than 3000 students from about 370 law schools from around the world will compete.
