The Plesner Pre-Moot returns on 28 and 29 March 2022

The Plesner Pre-Moot returns in March 2022. The pre-moot will serve as preparation for the 29th annual Vis Moot competition - the world's largest and most prestigious moot court competition in the field of arbitration.

Each spring, the international arbitration community gets together (virtually in recent years) to take part in the annual William C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot (Vis Moot) as "mooties", coaches and arbitrators. This year, law students from around the globe will be testing their legal savvy and advocacy skills in a mock commercial arbitration concerning the sale of palm oil under the Convention on the International Sale of Goods (CISG).

The competition gains in popularity every year and plays an important role in the education and shaping of the dispute resolution practitioners of tomorrow. The Vis Moot also offers a unique venue for experienced professionals to network and discuss contemporary issues of the trade. 

Plesner wants to invest in future generations and to contribute to the development and sharing of knowledge across borders and legal practice areas, including international dispute settlement. 

Since 2018, Plesner has deepened its engagement in developing tomorrow's practitioners through a cooperation with the University of Copenhagen to coach the university's Vis-Moot team. The 2021/2022 team is composed of hand-picked Master students who will represent the school of law in the Vis Moot. As the leading Danish law firm in the field of international dispute resolution, Plesner is organizing its 4th pre-moot in 2022.

Although the main competition has been moved to a virtual platform in 2022, the Plesner Pre-Moot will take place in person at Plesner’s offices in Copenhagen on 28-29 March 2022. Here, the students will have the opportunity to measure themselves against their peers, to refine their arguments and to receive feedback from experienced arbitration practitioners. The Plesner Pre-Moot also offers the participating "arbitrators" a unique chance to share their knowledge and experiences with the students and other practitioners in an informal setting.
