In addition, the Links page provides a list of online resources for research, the main competitions, and other related commercial arbitration organizations.
The VICAM team participates in international commercial law and arbitration, a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), competitions around the world.
The mission of our team is to foster the development of international legal writing, arbitration, and oral advocacy skills among its members; to promote professionalism and academic excellence; to employ the talent and coaching of the faculty; to maintain the school’s outstanding reputation through international competitions; work in conjunction with other student organizations who have similar goals and interests, such that each member will be prepared to keep pace with the advancements of international law and commerce.
Each spring students from more than 275 law schools in 70 different countries participate in the Vienna and Hong Kong Vis Moot competitions. Our team strives to hone our international arbitration skills as we prepare to compete against talented students from all over the world. Many of our current and former VICAM team members find the research, writing, and oral advocacy components of Vis Moot extremely rewarding. In addition, the opportunity to represent USD while competing overseas proves to be one of the most memorable and meaningful experiences a law student can have.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any comments or questions about our team or the Pro-moot competition.
