As you will see from the program, the Conference topics include some of the legal issues pertinent for this year’s Moot problem, and numerous prominent speakers from different parts of the world.

The official opening of the Pre-Moot will take place right after the completion of the third conference panel (on new claims and consolidation in arbitration (!)) in amf V. We are looking forward to welcoming 56 teams from 24 different countries and 300 arbitrators for the event.

The teams will receive their ID cards as well as the coupons for the subsequent cocktail that will be organized in restaurant Berliner, which is within 5 minutes walking distance from the Faculty. Drinks and catering therein is sponsored by our partner and co-organizer the DIS. Please note that coupons are required for free drinks.

The pre-moot rounds will take place over the weekend from 11, 15 and 17h, according to your team schedules. Please note that the team schedule is subject to changes that will be regularly published and updated at our website. The location of hearing rooms can be accessed here.
