Richard Dewitt Memorial Pre-Moot Vis Competition Presented by The Florida Bar International Law Section
JAMS is proud to host for the 8th year in a row, The Richard DeWitt Memorial Vis Pre-Moot Competition on Saturday, February 27, 2021. The day-long virtual event includes four rounds between the competing law schools with seasoned practitioners serving as arbitrators.
The Pre-Moot VIS Competition is an annual event hosted by the ILS aimed at giving students an opportunity to practice and sharpen their skills by presenting and defending their legal arguments and receiving feedback from some of the best practitioners in the field.
Students must argue the jurisdictional, procedural and substantive issues raised by the case before a panel composed of practitioners, under the applicable international treaties and rules. The subject matter of the competition is typically a controversy that arises out of a dispute governed by the United Nation’ Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. In prior years the dispute has been governed by ICC rules, UNCITRAL rules, and the New York Convention has been applied.
The event brings together practitioners and students that share a passion for international law. Practitioners can also receive CLE credit for their contribution.
