AIG is Hosting 4th Vis Moot Boot Camp in Bazaleti

Back

Once again, for the fourth time in a row, AIG Vis Boot Camp is a starting point for the Vis Moot journey of Georgian teams. Students of Free University of Tbilisi, Tbilisi State University, New Vision University, GIPA and University of Georgia are participating in intensive crash-course in international commercial arbitration, CISG and academic writing.

The Boot Camp is an innovation of AIG supporting the development of legal education and practice in the field of commercial arbitration. After the years of successful activities in the field of promotion of arbitration through supporting Georgian representation in Willem C. International Commercial Arbitration Moot, we decided to offer local moot participants a week-long intensive training program in the event of the 23rd annual Vis Moot Competition.

After its launching in 2014, the Boot Camp gained an extremely positive feedback from participants and invited trainers as well as international Vis Moot society. Having compared the ultimate efficiency of preparatory process and readiness of Georgian Vis Moot participants with and without the Boot Camp experience, we could observe that the Camp played an important role as an education and social experience for the students who successfully represented our Country in the most prestigious competition in the field of international arbitration and sales law.

The Camp would not have become tradition without the support of participating Universities. We appreciate the contribution of Free University of Tbilisi, which served as the host of all the teams, New Vision University, GIPA and University of Georgia for sponsoring and supporting the event.

AIG is particularly grateful for the support UN Joint Project  "Enhancing Access to Justice and Development of a Child-friendly Justice System in Georgia" funded by the European Union.
