Teams from 4 BiH Universities and Pitt Consortium

On March 21-30, CLDP led teams from 4 BiH Universities: University of Sarajevo, University of Zenica, University of Tuzla, and University of Banja Luka to participate in the 25th Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot in Vienna, Austria. The annual Vis Moot is the pre-eminent international moot on commercial law and arbitration, and teams from 362 universities took part in the written and oral advocacy competition.

Students from the University of Zenica Faculty of Law made history this year by being the first team from the Balkans to advance to the Round of 16. CLDP started its Vis Moot program in Bosnia-Herzegovina in 2014 and has since supported universities across BiH by holding written memoranda and oral advocacy trainings in preparation for the final competition in Vienna.
