The 2022-2023 Middle East Vis Pre-Moot Program theme is “Ready for Take-Off.”  This year’s theme is centered on improving the quality of teams’ performances in all Vis Pre-Moot and Moot events, regional and international. Over the course of years, we have focused on empowering students, coaches, managers, mentors, and faculty to develop a framework for institutionalizing Vis in their respective communities.  Through our efforts, we have increased the visibility of countries at the Vis Moot and have improved the capacity of international commercial arbitration experts throughout the Middle East and North Africa, as well as other regions throughout the world, namely Central Asia and Africa. The 2022 – 2023 Pre-Moot program is focused on supporting the advancement of teams’ legal written and oral advocacy skills, to a level that would ensure successful transition to the workforce, essentially “Ready for Take-Off!”

The 2022-2023 Middle East Vis Pre-Moot program will span from August 2022 to April 2023 and is by invitation only.
