Different kind of March Madness: Georgia Law’s Vis Moot Elite 8

Vis_editedThe team that the University of Georgia School of Law fielded in this year’s Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot in Vienna, Austria, bested a team from the University of Belgrade to advance to the quarterfinals, known as the Round of 8.

The impressive showing marked another excellent trip to Vienna for our students, who comprised one of the more than 300 teams that competed from all over the world in this 23d edition of the Vis Moot. The only U.S. teammembers to compete past the quarterfinals, they are, from left above: Ronald Chicken, coach Sara Burns, Emily Cox, Bethany Edmondson, and student coach Stephen Morrison.

So proud of our Elite 8 competitors!
