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.
