Tryouts for the Vis International Arbitration Moot Competitions

in San Diego, Hong Kong, and Vienna: September 6, 2018

Applications due August 30, 2018

 

Schedule and Procedure for Tryouts: Interested moot advocates are invited to try out for the Vis Int’l Commercial Arbitration Moot on September 6, 2018. If interested, sign up for a slot with Beverly Kosik via email at Beverly.Kosik@asu.edu. To apply as a full advocate, submit to Ms. Kosik the following:  (1) a resume with your current email address and phone #, (2) a brief letter, which should include (a) a summary of your experience and success in speech, debate, moot-court or similar experience, (b) a statement of your availability to work on briefs during fall and winter break, and (c) your overall GPA and grades in legal writing courses, as well as any other indication of your experience and ability in researching and writing briefs. The best applicants for this very competitive moot are those with substantial experience in speech, debate, moot court, or mock trial, so that they are “unflappable” under pressure and love the spotlight of competitive presentation before a panel of expert judges, who range from delightful to grumpy. Deadline to apply: noon, August 30, 2018.
