Brooklyn Law Team Excels at Vis Moot in Vienna

AT THE 26TH ANNUAL Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot in Vienna, the Brooklyn Law School team received the third-highest score in the General Rounds—the four rounds that determine which teams will advance to the Elimination Rounds. Terry Frederic ’19 captured the Martin Domke Award, the top honor for individual oralist, and Rebecca Meyer ’19 was awarded Honorable Mention. The team, which also included Dylan Porcello ’19, advanced to the elimination rounds and succeeded to the Round of 32.

“The team members said they wanted to make history this year, and they did exactly that,” said Lewis Kimmelman, adjunct professor and partner at Sidley. He, along with Adjunct Professor Dana McGrath, investment manager and legal counsel at Bentham IMF, worked with the team throughout the year.

Since 1994, the annual Vis Moot has attracted teams from nearly 400 law schools worldwide, participating in more than 20 pre-moots each year before the actual rounds. It is the largest moot in the world in its field, with 1,000 students competing annually.

Frederic serves as law clerk for Hon. Claire Kelly ’93 on the U.S. Court of International Trade. Meyer is interning in the Paris office of Curtis Mallet-Prevost Colte & Mosle with the international arbitration group and will also serve as law clerk for Kelly in 2020. Porcello practices labor and employment law at Littler Mendels.
