From October 19-23, CLDP, in partnership with the Center for International Legal Education of the University of Pittsburgh, the Bahrain Chamber for Dispute Resolution, and other regional partners, initiated a week-long legal analysis course for teams from the Middle East, South Asia, and Southeast Asia. The 28th Annual Middle East Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot (Vis Moot) is an UNCITRAL-founded educational platform used to develop the practice of international commercial arbitration by engaging law students, lawyers, judges, and arbitrators in mock trials. With support from CLDP, teams participate in an extensive 9-month program dedicated to ensuring successful competition and representation in the Vis Moot. Following a course on arbitration last month, the teams worked with global advisors through virtual sessions and interactive discussions to develop their respective written submissions for the Vis Moot, while also networking with teams from other law schools to trade tips and resources. The program showcases how to incorporate virtual education, share experiences, and develop best practices on international commercial arbitration.
