March 2011 – Chaffetz Lindsey is continuing its support of the annual Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot. The moot, held each year in Vienna, brings together students from around the world to compete in rounds of mock arbitral hearings. This year’s moot – the 18th – will be attended by students from 262 universities and 66 countries.
In recent weeks, Chaffetz Lindsey’s James Hosking and Yasmine Lahlou have acted as arbitrators in several moot preparation events in New York and on March 26 the firm hosted a practice session. In addition, James was a keynote speaker at the pre-moot event held at the American Arbitration Association’s International Centre for Dispute Resolution on March 11. James is also a co-coach of the Harvard Law School Vis team.
