Center for Transnational Litigation, Arbitration and Commercial Law


NYU School of Law offers to a select number of students the possibility to take part in the Vis Arbitral Moot, a moot created in 1994 with the goal of fostering the study of international commercial law and international commercial arbitration, two of the areas on which the Center focuses, through their application to a concrete problem relating to an international import/export contract. For further information about the moot click here. Selection of the students participating in the Vis Arbitral Moot will take place during the month of September. Come back to this website for more specific information in September. If you want to know what fellow students think of the Vis Arbitral Moot, click on the link that leads you to a blog.

NYU School of Law, through the Center for Transnational Litigation, Arbitration and Commercial Law, is cooperating with the Institute of International Commercial Law at Pace Law School to provide translations of arbitral awards issued by the China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission (CIETAC) involving the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sales of Goods (CISG). Students who are fluent in Chinese and English translate the arbitral awards, and their translations are posted on the CISG Database of the Institute. The student receives compensation as a research assistant and is identified as the translator on the website. Interested students should contact Professor Franco Ferrari or Professor Clayton Gillette.
