2nd Asia Pacific Vis Pre Moot

This competition will provide the students with an experience of the renowned International Vis Moot and also train them for International Commercial Arbitrations. This will further promote Arbitration as a mode of dispute resolution in the Asia Pacific region.

This is the first Pre-Moot to adopt the noble vision of – Arbitration for ALL as we have made it a goal of diversity, dignity, and unity for all in the field of arbitration. This Pre-Moot will be a one-of-a-kind initiative to ensure diversity and inclusion of all students by ensuring all materials are available in braille, read-aloud texts, and offering the assistance of sign-language interpreters if students would require to argue apart from the normal texts and material.

The ideology behind this moot is to step out of the ordinary and provide an exposure for holistic development and learning.

This is an exciting new competition that aims to give training to young budding lawyers and students to improve their skills in advocacy and arbitration, This Pre-Moot will be an essential part of training for students and arbitrators planning to attend the Vis Moot and Vis East Moot. The skills learned here will also be a key component for future careers in arbitration.
