Dear Willem C. Vis Moot Participants around the globe,

The Faculty of Law of Lomonosov Moscow State University cordially invites you to take part in the 8th Moscow Premoot for the 24th Willem C. Vis Moot Competition.

The event will take place on 17-19 March 2017 and will gather up to 20 foreign and Russian teams. The arbitrators will give the grades to the participants. Based on the grades we will announce three best teams and three best speakers of the 8th Moscow Pre-moot. This will happen at the Awards Ceremony and Banquet at Atrium at the Faculty of Law, where the guests shall also expect special awards and surprises.

To bring the participants a little bit closer to a success in Vienna, on 17 March 2017 we organize the Vis Moot Workshop where renowned Vienna arbitrators and coaches will give the tips to participants. The Workshop on practical skills will be followed by the Conference devoted to some issues raised by Willem C Vis Organizers this year. This year we have a new and unique venue for the Conference – the Lumiere Brothers Center of Photography. The event will end up with the Welcome Reception.

To make the 8th Moscow Premoot a more exciting event we arranged a cultural and social programme: guided tours to Lomonosov University, including to the top of the Main Building, to Moscow iconic memorial houses, a walk in historic center of Moscow to Gorkiy Park, a journey via Moscow tube and of course visits to the bars.

If your team is interested in participating in the 8th Moscow Pre-moot or if you are interested to act as an arbitrator please register at this web page before 1 March 2017 (7 March 2017 for arbitrators).

Should you have any questions about the coming event, please contact Olesya Petrol or Kirill Udovichenko

We look forward to seeing you at the 8th Moscow Premoot!

Yours Sincerely,

Organizing committee
