Join us for an evening of discussion and debate, followed by drinks. The evening is aimed at more junior practitioners but all are welcome to attend. We hope that you will be able to join us for what we are sure will be a very lively and enjoyable evening.

The Vis Moot offers a unique insight into what is one of most exciting practice areas the law has to offer: international arbitration. Many former Mooties cannot get enough of it and move on to build a career in international arbitration. They return to Vienna once a year to meet their former co-counsel, reminisce about their first pleading and teach the next generation what they have learnt at the Moot. This includes all our panelists, who have been Mooties and coaches before they started to practice arbitration in international law firms and arbitral institutions. Let us pick their brains on how mooting compares to their daily work and how they made the Moot the founding stone of their career.

#YoungITATalks is a series of local events presented around the world, featuring talks, workshops or interviews that cover a wide range of subjects relating to arbitration. The #YoungITATalks series is designed for education, conversation and sharing knowledge and experiences among young practitioners.

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsor, this event is tuition-free and includes drinks. Please register in advance to help us have an accurate headcount.  This is only an in-person event.
