Moot Shanghai is a pre-moot in advance of the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot. It is an annual competition of teams representing law schools from different jurisdictions.

As an educational program, it is designed to be a forum for different legal education methods, practices, traditions of different jurisdictions, and to forge understanding and friendship.

Moot Shanghai 2021 adopts the same problem as the 28th annual Vis Moot.  Teams take responsibility as legal representatives of Claimant and Respondent in an international commercial arbitration.  Tribunals of three arbitrators, who are attorneys, arbitrators, or business professionals, hear arguments and give each team scores on legal knowledge, advocacy skill and teamwork.

Moot Shanghai is currently open the registration for representing teams and arbitrators until 24th December.
