Lausanne Mooties started this petition to Vis Moot Court Directors

After the sad news about the cancellation of the Moot week in Vienna, which was scheduled to take place from April 3-9, 2020, and its potential replacement by online oral hearings, mooties would like to submit a different formula to the Directors of the Vis Moot.

In that regard, the mooties propose to postpone the final in Vienna to September 2020. According to experts, the virus should have passed its peak and have diminished considerably - if not disappeared due to the summer heat. In addition, students will largely be available as exam sessions are generally over in most universities around the world. In addition, airfares and hotel accommodation in Vienna will be affordable as teams will be able to book them several months in advance and the tourist season will be coming to an end.

Finally, we do not believe that online hearings are the best way to judge the quality of the oralists and teams. We believe that many aspects that make a pleading a good one are hardly felt through a screen.

Therefore, we propose to the organizing committee of the Vis Moot Court and the Directors to postpone the final to September 2020, before the publication of the case of the 28th edition of the Vis Moot Court and to allow the Mooties to live the Vis experience in the best possible way.

To all mooties, coaches and arbitrators: sign the petition!
