Apply to be on Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot Team!
HLS Administrative Updates 2013-09-13
HLS sends one team to each Vis Moot every year (Vienna and Hong Kong) and is currently recruiting for this year’s teams. Join us for an information session from 12:00-12:30 on Tuesday, September 17 in WCC 4061 to learn more about the team and the tryout process. For information about the competition, please check out http://www.cisg.law.pace.edu/vis.html (Vis Vienna) and http://www.cisgmoot.org/index.html (Vis Hong Kong). Historically, the Harvard team has done exceptionally well. Last year, five oralists won honorable mention awards in Hong Kong and Vienna; the year before, three oralists won honorable mention, while the Memorandum for Claimant was awarded first place (out of 255 teams) and all other briefs received honorable mention. This year the team will be composed of 8-10 2Ls/3Ls/LLMs who will travel to either Vienna or Hong Kong, as well as 1-3 1Ls who are interested in helping with research and writing and participating in practice moots in New York and DC. To apply, fill out the form available at: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1gymAer9… and email your resume/CV and a writing sample to Tessa Hayes at thayes at jd14.law.harvard.edu. Applicants will also need to sign up for a tryout time the weekend of Sept. 21-22 or Mon, Sept. 23. Further instructions, including the tryout question, are available at https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BxR7K7WB…. Feel free to email Tessa with any questions as well!
