DLA Piper

Proudly sponsored by DLA Piper

 

The Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) Australia Branch Young Members' Group Committee invites you to participate in the 2019 CIArb Australia Pre-Moot, sponsored by global law firm, DLA Piper.

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 2019. The Pre-Moot offers a unique extension of the Vis Moot experience for Australian students. Students will face interstate counterparts and appear before eminent arbitration professionals.

The Pre-Moot will be held on 21 and 22 February 2019 in Melbourne, at the offices of DLA Piper, and a partner university (to be confirmed). The proposed timetable is available via this link.

Through the generosity of CIArb Australia and DLA Piper, the organisers are pleased to offer a contribution to the costs of interstate travel for participating Australian teams. The contribution is capped at an amount estimated to cover 50% of teams’ travel and accommodation costs.

For full details, please see the reimbursement guidelines available via this link.

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 via this link 

Please register for the event by 31 January 2019 using the online registration form.

Kind regards
