IO, Bandung – Students of the Faculty of Law, Padjadjaran University won awards at the 18th Annual Willem C. Vis (East) Moot Court Competition which was held last March 14-21. It is the most prestigious international moot court competition in the fields of international arbitration and commercial law.
The Padjadjaran University Faculty of Law delegation who participated in the Vis East Moot Court Competition consisted of Naufal Ahmad Shiddiq (2017), Amrul Akbar Pulungan (2018), Helsa Rakhel Tambunan (2018), Darian Amarta (2019), Ferera Ardine Jillian Naibaho (2019), Muhammad Labib Wajdi (2019) and Syifa Adila (2019).

In the competition, the Padjadjaran University Faculty of Law team won two awards: the Honorable Mention Award for the Claimant Memorandum and the Honorable Mention Award for the Respondent Memorandum. Padjadjaran University was the only team from Indonesia to receive the two awards.
This year the Vis East Moot Court Competition was held virtually again. The topic raised was an issue that many arbitrators considered difficult to debate, namely two respondents who tried to join a third party in the arbitration process regarding various matters relating to the transaction of Covid-19 vaccine material.
“For seven months the team worked on researching and compiling legal notes, as well as honing skills in oral advocacy,” said the manager of the Padjadjaran University Faculty of Law delegation, Nabila Riska, as quoted by Unpad.ac.id, Wednesday (24/3/2021).
Last February, the Padjadjaran University Faculty of Law team also participated in the 11th Indonesian Willem C. Vis (East) Pre-Moot competition which was contested by several universities in Indonesia.
