About the Event The Middle East Vis Pre-Moot Competition seeks to bolster the competitiveness of MENA teams in the annual Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot by providing essential training for the  Moots in Vienna (see https://vismoot.pace.edu/) and Hong Kong (see https://www.cisgmoot.org/). Students are graded on their oral pleading skills by arbitrators renowned in the region and internationally under conditions similar to those of the oral rounds in Vienna and Hong Kong.
