The moot acted as a practice session for the teams participating in the [[Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot, Vienna|Willem C. Vis Moot, Vienna]] and the [[Willem C. Vis (East) International Commercial Arbitration Moot, Hong Kong|Willem C. Vis (East), Hong Kong]], which are Tier 1 moots in the MPL Season 2 sponsored by Allen & Overy.

The pre moot, a first of its kind in India, was jointly organized by [[NUJS Kolkata]] and [[Nalsar Hyderabad]] last weekend. The NUJS team for Vienna consisted of Smaran Shetty, Karan Talwar, Rishabh Goenka and the NUJS team for Hong Kong had Nihal Joseph, Abhijnan Jha and Aditya Alok. Pooorvi Satija, Puneeth Nagraj from Nalsar and John Raghav, Arya Trivedi from HNLU finished semi-finalists.

The NUJS Vienna team (pictured) won a prize money of Rs 1,00,000/- which was sponsored by Bharucha & Partners, Mr. Anirudh Wadhwa and the NUJS Moot Court Society. The final round was adjudged by an arbitration panel which was presided by Veeraraghavan Inbavijayan, a member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators who has presided as a sole arbitrator in over 750 domestic cases and five international cases in South Asia. Successful ex-Vis mooters Shreya Parikh, Zehaan Trivedi, Deepak Raju, Shatadru, Rukmini Das and Sneha J judged the preliminary rounds.

image Ramanuj Mukherjee and Deepak Raju from NUJS along with Poorvi Satija and Shreya Parikh from Nalsar conceived and planned the organization of the pre moot in India. They intend this to be an annual affair from now on with NUJS and Nalsar alternatively hosting the event. Due to the delayed decision to organize the pre moot this year, only seven teams from across the national law universities and law colleges of the country could take part.
