CEAC Arbitration Pre-Moot

CEAC Arbitration Pre-Moot
Bird & Bird LLP Clifford Chance Graf von Westphalen

Dear Friends,

For the first time in its history, the Chinese-European Arbitration Centre (CEAC) hosted its own pre moot. The 2012 decision of the Vis Moot Committee, to launch a case based on our rules for the 2013 Vis Moot Competition encouraged us to take this adventure. The success was overwhelming: 38 teams from 17 jurisdictions with more than 300 participants came to the wonderful city of Düsseldorf and spent two exciting days there. Three generous law firms, Bird & Bird, Clifford Chance and Graf von Westphalen, all of them actively involved in the centre, were happy to sponsor the event helping us to have a great time with all of you. Arbitrators, lawyers and staff from all three firms and from CEAC made it a great event everybody remembers.

February 26 and 27 February 2013 saw more than 100 hearings, more than 70 distinguished arbitrators, the biggest moot party outside Vienna, the Clifford Chance Litigation band life on stage, a real tier one sport's arbitrator, Prof. Dr. Martin Schimke of Bird & Bird and much more. The participants met the top level management of the organisation: The two of us, currently Secretary General of CEAC and President of CEAC's Shareholder, the Chinese European Legal Association, had the pleasure to be in charge of the event. Our Managing Director, Prof. Dr. Eckart Brödermann, our Vice-President Dr. Dominik Ziegenhahn and our Board Member Prof. Dr. Irene Welser travelled to Düsseldorf.

Our vision became true: Everybody prepared for the Vis Moot, met the arbitrators, got an insight in CEAC, got to know the three international law firms and so more: Everybody had lots of fun!
