Eleven teams of student participants attended the first Willem C Vis International Arbitration Moot in 1993/1994. Almost twenty-five years later, 338 teams from more than 70 countries plus a huge number of coaches and arbitrators gathered in what is now considered one of the largest international arbitration events in the world. The cases dealt with are based on an international sales transaction governed by CISG, including procedural issues of arbitration.
The book is written for participants of the Vis Moot. It provides the reader with step-by-step practical advice in order to maximise his or her Vis Moot experience. It explains registration and offers tips on finding and organising the team, analysing the case, writing memoranda, presenting the case in the oral pleadings, and organising the trips to Vienna or Hong Kong. Any student considering taking part in the so-called 'Moot Experience' will find the information needed to make the Vis Moot a unique lifetime experience.
