27th Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot
The Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot is one of the most prestigious international moot court competitions for law students. Taking place annually in Vienna since 1994, it gathers up more than 2000 students, practitioners and academics with an objective of fostering the study of the international commercial law and arbitration.
For the 13th consecutive time, the University of Lausanne is presenting a team to the Vis Moot and will be represented this year by:
Anaïs Essinger, Enzo Bastian, Claudio Colombi and Manon Schläpfer.
This year Jonas Zaugg will coach under the supervision of Professor Andrea Bonomi.
The team benefits as well from the support and guidance of
Sergii Drug, Professor Eva Lein, Professor Karen Druckman and John Curran.
The Problem of the XXVII Moot regards the complex issue of the validity of asymmetrical arbitration agreements as well as challenging a party-appointed expert under the LCIA arbitration rules. The problem also deals with the problematic of whether the suspicion of a defect in water turbines can constitute a defect in itself under the CISG and whether the buyer may be entitled to immediate replacement goods in such circumstances even when the seller has offered inspections and repairs.
The Moot problem can be accessed on the Moot website.
