Atkin Chambers is pleased to be a supporting patron of the Vis East Moot Foundation

3rd Feb 2021

Atkin Chambers is pleased to be a supporting patron of the Vis East Moot Foundation and the 18th Vis East Moot to be held virtually on 14th – 21st March 2021.

“It is especially important at this time to support organisations that provide educational experiences for students across the world” comments David Barnes, CEO and Director of Clerking at Atkin Chambers, “Atkin Chambers is delighted to be a supporting patron for this competition which is designed to promote knowledge and understanding of international arbitration for future practitioners.”

The Willem C Vis East International Arbitration Moot (the Vis East Moot) is an international arbitration mooting competition, which is attended by more than 120 teams.  The Vis Moot began in Vienna in 1992-1993 and has expanded to approximately 300 competing law schools today. The goals of the Vis East Moot and the original Vis Moot in Vienna are the promotion and study of international commercial arbitration and the training of tomorrow’s legal leaders in methods of alternate dispute resolution.

Structure of the Moot

Law students participate in two separate but equally important phases: the research and writing of memoranda for both claimant and respondent, and oral arguments based upon the memoranda. Both phases are judged by panels of international arbitration experts. The Moot problem always involves a contract dispute arising out of a transaction relating to the sale and purchase of goods under the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG).
