The Willem C. Vis Moot Court Competition team is Penn State Law’s flagship arbitration moot court team. Each year, Penn State Law sends a four member team to Vienna, Austria to compete in the largest international commercial competition in the world. The Vis moot team is also the only moot court team at Penn State Law that is available to both J.D. and LLM students.
Participating on the Vis team gives students the opportunity to draft legal briefs, and participate in oral arguments before some of the most recognized international arbitrators in the world. Team members will also have the opportunity to engage in a number of “pre-moot” practices against other domestic and international laws schools.
