CIArb Australia Vis Pre-Moot


Arbitrator registration for the 2020 Pre-Moot is open. Team registration has now closed.

See the Pre-Moot Guide for full details, including the Supplementary Rules.

The Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) Australia Vis Pre-Moot is held in Melbourne each year, in the weeks preceding the Willem C Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot (Vis Moot), and the Vis East Moot. The Pre-Moot is organised by the CIArb Australia Young Members Group.

The fourth Pre-Moot will be held on 5-6 March 2020, and is proudly sponsored by DLA Piper.

The Pre-Moot is open to all teams participating in the Vis Moot or Vis East in April 2020. We are pleased to open the 2020 Pre-Moot to international teams for the first time. 

The Pre-Moot uses the moot problem of the Vis Moot and Vis East. It is one of many pre-moot events held prior to the Vis Moot and Vis East each year. The CIArb Australia Pre-Moot is the only such event of a similar scale in Australia or Oceania,with ten teams and over 60 arbitrators participating in 2019. 

CIArb contributes to meeting the costs of interstate travel for participating Australian teams. See the team travel reimbursement page for details.
