Dear colleagues and friends of the Vis Arbitration Moot Court,

1. Bergsten Lecture

The University of Vienna and the Austrian Arbitration Association (Arb|Aut) cordially invite you to the fifth Bergsten Lecture which takes place annually in the week of the Vis Arbitration Moot Court finals.

The Lecture is held in honour of Professor Eric Bergsten, the "father" of the Vis Arbitration Moot Court who had organized this event for more than 20 years.

This year's Lecture will be given by Cherie Blair, CBE, QC (Omnia Strategy LLP, London) who will discuss
Wikileaks & Beyond:
Admissibility of Improperly Obtained Evidence in International Arbitration.

The Lecture will be followed by a panel discussion chaired by Professor Paul Oberhammer (Faculty of Law, University of Vienna) with Florian Kremslehner (Dorda, Vienna) and Professor Stefan Kröll (Director Vis-Moot) as panel speakers.

The lecture will take place
on Sunday, 9 April 2017 from 15.00 to 18.00 hrs
at "Sallinger-Saal", Austrian Federal Economic Chamber (AFEC)

Wiedner Hauptstraße 63, 1040 Vienna, Austria.

After the lecture, Arb|Aut hosts a cocktail reception for participants of the Lecture, Arb|Aut members and Vis Arbitrators in AFEC’s Sky Lounge.
