Dear Willem C. Vis Moot Participants around the globe,

It is been 10 years since Moscow Pre-moot was firstly conducted. In 2010 the Moscow Pre-moot was a small event, with only a few Russian teams participating, gradually it became a well-known forum bringing together hundreds of participants coming both from Russia and abroad where student-participants meet experts in international arbitration and hone their skills before the main competition in Vienna.

Last year performance of the Higher School of Economics from Russia showed that there is great competitive environment here in Moscow that creates worthy conditions and networks for preparation both for the Willem C. Vis Moot Competition and for the future career of an international lawyer.

To bring the participants a little bit closer to success in Vienna, on 22 March 2019 we will organize the Vis Moot Workshop where international arbitrators and practitioners will give the tips to participants. The Workshop on practical skills will be followed by the Conference devoted to procedural issues raised by Willem C Vis Organizers this year. The event will end up with the Welcome Reception and Evening City Walk.

Apart from the rounds of hearings and the Conference, we arranged a cultural and social program: guided tours to Lomonosov University, including to the top of the Main Building, Moscow thematic tour, a walk in the historic center of Moscow, a journey via Moscow tube and of course visits to the bars.

Join us on10th Moscow Pre-moot – this year it will gather stars of international private law from all over the world in one place. They will be happy to share, coach and contribute in growing young generation. Furthermore, you will be the ones to discuss the questions stated in the Problem with the authorities that you probably will rely on when writing your written submissions. Do not miss this chance!

The rounds will take place on 23-24 March 2019.
