Ind. Law - "IU McKinney students prepare to compete in international commercial moot court"

From the announcement:

IU McKinney’s Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot Court competes in Vienna this spring

For the second year running, a group of students from the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law are competing in the most prestigious international business law competition in the world.

In April 2014, the IU McKinney Vis Team will face off with top law students from around the globe in Vienna, Austria at the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot competition. This event brings together more than 2,000 law students from 300 law schools and more than 70 countries. The IU McKinney Vis Team prepared throughout the 2013-2014 academic year to prepare written briefs and oral arguments on behalf of fictitious clients involved in an international commercial arbitration proceeding. Judging is performed by more than 650 of the world’s leading arbitrators, arbitration practitioners and academics.

Prior to competing in Vienna, the IU McKinney Vis Team will participate in pre-moot competitions organized by several law schools throughout the United States. The 2014 IU McKinney Competition Team consists of Justin Hage JD ’15, Devin Hillsdon-Smith JD ’14, Minji Park JD ’14, and Vanessa Woolsey JD ’14 and an additional team of researchers, coaches and managers.
