AMS Lawyer Onno Hennis involved in Vis Moot in Hong Kong

Last month, the Willem C. Vis Moot East (“Vis Moot”) took place in Hong Kong. The Vis Moot is a renowned moot court competition in the field of international trade arbitration. Lawyer Onno Hennis of AMS Advocaten in the Netherlands, who teaches the master’s course ‘International Commercial Arbitration’ at the University of Amsterdam, was present in Hong Kong to assist students from the Dagon University of Myanmar.

Capacity Building Project

Over the past six months, Onno has supported the students in the Capacity Building Project in drawing up the defence documents and preparing for the pleadings. The Capacity Building Project aims to enable students from jurisdictions where there are no or few resources to participate in the prestigious moot court competition, both financially and in terms of content.
