The Moot Academy prepares students for the participation in the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot. Its Essentials Course teaches students the basics of international arbitration, the CISG, and advocacy to facilitate successful participation in the Vis Moot. Vis Moot teams that face significant challenges in need of support are invited to apply for free Remote Coaching, and the free of charge Pre-Moot is a great opportunity for teams from everywhere to meet online and practise for the Vis Moot – without travel expenses.

We have received great support from the moot community, for which we would like to cordially thank the many volunteer Remote Coaches and Arbitrators, who all greatly contribute to enhancing the moot experience for everybody involved.

The Moot Academy was founded as part of SiLS, the Swiss International Law School. In 2018, SiLS and the Moot Academy parted ways but stay very good friends!
