Willem C. Vis Moot: Day 4 in Pictures

Canadian teams have done well this year – Osgoode Hall Law School, McGill Law School and the University of Ottawa are ranked among the top 32 teams at the moot and are proceeding to elimination rounds tomorrow.  I presume that at this very moment, they are studiously preparing for tomorrow’s rounds. The arbitrators, however, are free to go out and enjoy a night at Aux Gazelles, the designated moot ‘party’ venue.

Myself with Alex Gordon (co-arbitrator and lawyer at Lovells, New York). In 2005, I co-coached a team from Queen's University, who faced Alex's  moot team from Harvard University in the elimination rounds. The Queens team beat Harvard in a 2-1 decision before Martin Hunter, as chair of the panel.  I have never let him forget that moment.
