Welcome to the BIAMC Vis Moot Guide. My name is Harald Sippel, I am the Author of the Book Mooting to Win, How to Succeed in International Moot Court Competitions. On this website, we provide participants of the Vis Moot with last minute tips and tricks so that they can maximize their performance. We do not focus on what you should do during the pleadings, like how you should make your introduction, answer questions and what a good rebuttal is. There is enough information out there. Instead, we focus on the psychological side to make sure that you survive the next few days!
