Eastern Europe: CLDP to Conduct Vis Moot Oral Argument Training and Pre-Moot


On February 8-13, CLDP, in coordination with Association Arbitri and the University of Zenica, held a four-day training on oral advocacy to prepare law students from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, and Belarus for the 28th Willem C. Vis Moot competition (Vis Moot) taking place virtually next month. Following the training, University of Zenica organized its first virtual Pre-Moot competition with participation from 30 law schools from the Balkans, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, India, East Asia and the United States. The training focused on how to deliver an argument, the importance of structure, time management, alternative arguments, and how to respond to arbitrators. This is the tenth year that CLDP has provided training to Vis Moot teams in the Balkans region, which is part of larger efforts to promote international arbitration standards and practice in the region.
