Hamburg, Germany: a gateway to the world with its huge shipping port and a traditional center of international trade and international law. Centuries ago, merchants from Hamburg crossed the borders and participated in the first trade alliance with a uniform commercial law and its own jurisdiction – the “Hanseatic League”.

In this Hanseatic spirit, since 2009, every year participants of the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot (Vis Moot) gather in Hamburg for the Hanseatic Pre-Moot, one of the most sought in Europe.

In the twelve years of the Hanseatic Pre-Moot’s history, teams came from all over the world (Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Iran, New Zealand, Paraguay, Poland, Serbia, Switzerland, Sweden, United States) ensuring a valuable exchange of strategies, arguments and cultural views between the participants.

Apart from the strong cooperation and commitment from different law firms as well as the high level of participating teams, the quality and preparation of arbitrators has always been one of the highlighting features of the Hanseatic Pre-Moot. Arbitrators are lawyers from the participating firms and members of the Hanseatic Arbitration Circle, as well as external arbitrators, who are most welcome to contribute to the 6th CAM-CCBC Hanseatic Pre-Moot.

Providing a professional and at the same time friendly environment to the teams, coaches and arbitrators, the CAM-CCBC Hanseatic Pre-Moot is a distinguished opportunity in the journey of the Vis Moot. We are looking forward to welcoming you and your team in Hamburg!

The 6th edition of the CAM-CCBC Hanseatic Pre-Moot will take place in 2022, organised by the CAM-CCBC, the Hamburg Arbitration Circle (HAC), the Moot Alumni Association of the University of Hamburg and several Hamburg law firms.

More information will be available soon.
