LSU Law recently competed in the Willem C. Vis International Arbitration Moot Court held in Vienna, Austria. 178 law schools with more than 1,000 individual students from 51 countries participated. The LSU Law team finished in the top third of all schools at the competition – quite a feat for the school’s first trip to this prestigious event. Laranda Moffett, third-year student, received Honorable Mention in the Individual Best Advocate category. This award is reserved for the top five percent of all competitors.
Held in Vienna each spring, the Vis is the premiere international commercial law moot court. Sponsored by Pace Law School, the moot involves an arbitration of a contract of sale between two parties in countries that are signatories to the United Nation’s Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.
