The PreMoot in Hannover
The Hannover PreMoot is designed to be an educational and beneficial experience for everyone. We offer all participants the best possible preparation for the oral rounds in Hongkong and Vienna. During the last years the Hannover PreMoot became one of the biggest Premoots in Europe. In the last years the PreMoot hosted 30 teams each time from a total of 17 nations e.g. from the Netherlands, Turkey, Poland, India, Greece, England, and the Czech Republic.
The pleadings are held in the faculty rooms providing very short ways between the pleading rooms and the lounge in the „Dachgeschoss“ where all the participants can enjoy free hot and cold beverages and some snacks. Moreover, the teams will have the possibility to held a pleading in the Moot Court Room of the faculty, a room especially designed for Moot Courts. Between the pleadings all participants will have plenty opportunities to get to know the arbitrators and other teams. Like the Vis Moot itself the Hannover PreMoot is not only an educational but also a social experience.
During the PreMoot every team will have at least five or six pleadings. The tribunals will be composed of law professors, attorneys, coaches and former Willem C. Vis Moot participants. This aims to offer the teams a very realistic impression of the setting of the elimination rounds in Vienna and Hongkong. Although the Hannover PreMoot will not have a final ranking, the arbitrators will score the teams after the pleadings. These scorings as well as the scorings of the direct opponent will be send to the teams after the PreMoot. On Thursday, the first day of the PreMoot, the Institute for civil procedure and legal profession likes to invite all the participants to a reception before the pleadings start on Friday.
