CIArb Australia Vis Pre-Moot 2018

The Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) Australia Branch Young Members Group Committee invites you to participate in the 2018 CIArb Australia Vis Pre-Moot.

 

The Pre-Moot is open to all Australian teams competing in the Willem C Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot in Vienna, or the Vis East Moot in Hong Kong, in 2018. The Pre-Moot offers a unique extension of the Vis Moot experience for Australian students. Students will face interstate counterparts and appear before seasoned arbitration professionals.

The Pre-Moot will be structured in two parts. The Preliminary Rounds, followed by the finals to be held in Melbourne. The Preliminary Rounds will be held at the CBD offices of supporting law firms:

  • for Queensland teams: in Brisbane on 14 February 2018;
  • for New South Wales and ACT teams: in Sydney on 15 February 2018; and
  • for Victorian teams: in Melbourne on 16 February 2018.

If teams in Western Australia or South Australia participate, additional Preliminary Rounds will be held at suitable venues.

The winning team of each Preliminary Round will then be invited to compete in finals in Melbourne on 1 March 2018. CIArb Australia will assist successful teams to attend by contributing to the cost of return airfares and accommodation for two students and one coach. Please see the attached reimbursement guidelines for full details.

Students will be required to join CIArb as a Student Affiliate member before the Pre-Moot. Student membership is free of charge. Details of student membership and the application, along with the application form, are available on the CIArb website (http://www.ciarb.org/membership/member-types/students).

Please register for the event by 31 January 2018 at the following link: https://goo.gl/a6o8D2If you have any questions please direct them to James Sullivan/Andrew Di Pasquale or myself at ciarbpremoot@gmail.com

Sincerely

About the Museum of Contemporary Art

Located on one of the world’s most spectacular sites on the edge of Sydney Harbour, the Museum of Contemporary Art opened its doors to the public in November 1991. Established through a bequest by Australian expatriate artist John Power (1881-1943), who left his personal fortune to the University of Sydney to inform and educate Australians about international contemporary visual art, the MCA is Australia's only museum dedicated to exhibiting, interpreting and collecting contemporary art from across Australia and around the world. A major partner of the Biennale of Sydney, the MCA houses an entire floor dedicated to the MCA Collection, as well as two floors of galleries for exhibitions.

About the Sculpture Terrace
Boasting spectacular views of the world-famous Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge, the Sculpture Terrace's pivoting glass doors open out onto the partly covered terrace inviting guests to take-in the beauty of Sydney’s city skyline.
