Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot

Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot

In 1992, Pace-IICL founded the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot 

The Moot was established to educate law students world-wide on international sales law and international arbitration.  Under the twenty-year leadership of Pace Professor Emeritus Eric Bergsten, it has grown into a prominent educational and professional event, attracting nearly 300 teams from approximately sixty countries, as well as hundreds of professionals -- academics, arbitrators, and practitioners -- to attend related conference and networking events hosted during the annual competition in Vienna, Austria.
