Macarena Iturra participates as referee in one of the rehearsals of those who will participate in Vis Moot - DLA PIPER CHILE

On Thursday, March 21, our counsel from the Litigation and Dispute Resolution area, Macarena Iturra, participated as an arbitrator in one of the internal trials of the University of Chile, of which they will participate in “The Annual Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot” (Vis Moot).

Vis Moot is an international competition consisting of the preparation of written memorials of claim and defence and the presentation of oral arguments in Austria, between 11 and 18 April 2019, on the basis of a fictitious case involving the application of the Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, the Rules of the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre, the 1958 New York Convention, the UNCITRAL Model Arbitration Law and the UNIDROIT Principles.

The invitation was extended in view of the fact that Macarena Iturra is an arbitrator and has previously participated in the preparation of other students of said University. Likewise, DLA Piper supports competition abroad. More information about this competition can be found at: https://vismoot.pace.edu/
