Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot Court

Each year the University of Basel sends a team of students to compete in the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot Competition in Vienna.

The Vis Moot Court has taken place annually since 1994, culminating each year in Vienna when over 1000 law students from 300 law schools across 70 countries come together to battle it out in a simulated arbitration concerning a CISG international sale of goods dispute.

Team members have the unique opportunity to work closely with experts in the fields of international arbitration and commercial law, present their case to professionals throughout Switzerland and abroad, improve their written and oral English skills, and make connections with students, lawyers, and professors from around the world.
