ABOUT THE VIS EAST MOOT
The Vis East Moot Competition is the sister competition to the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot in Vienna. Given the continuous and rapid expansion of Asia’s economy, international commercial transactions and, inevitably, cross-border disputes in Asia have been on the rise. The Vis East Moot provides law students, academics, and professionals with a similar exposure to, and experience in, international arbitration and trade law as the Vis Moot in Vienna, but with an Asian context.
The oral hearings will take place face to face this year, at Justice Place in Central Hong Kong, from 19 March – 26 March 2023. The Problem is now available on the website and involves a controversy arising out of an international sale of drones. As usual, the dispute is subject to the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods Act (“CISG”). This year’s competition takes place under the Rules of the Permanent Court of Arbitration (“PCA Rules”)
