Formatted abstract
The TC Beime School of Law of The University of Queensland participated in the prestigious Willem C Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot 1996-97. The goals of the Moot are described in Volumes II and Ill of International Trade and Business Law Annual. It suffices for the purposes of this Introduction to remind readers that the Moot facilitates the training of law students in principles of international commercial law and techniques of international commercial arbitration.

Lisa Ford and Jacqueline Mowbray represented The University of Queensland at all hearings in Vienna which took place at the Juridicum of the University of Vienna and at the International Arbitral Centre of the Federal Economic Chamber in early April 1997. They won the coveted Frédéric Eisemann Award for Best Team Orals. The University of Queensland team also received second prize for the Best Written Statement of Claim. Upon their return to Australia all members of the team were honoured by His Excellency the Governor-General of Australia, Sir William Deane. Their excellence, commitment and dedication will hopefully encourage other students to achieve the exceptionally high standards achieved by this team.

It is not necessary to say more about the spectacular success of The University of Queensland team, except to let the statements which are reproduced hereafter speak for themselves. Although they do not reveal the skill with which the relevant argument. were developed by Ford and Mowbray, they indicate the level of scholarship which all members exhibited on their way to international success.

In the next sections, the Moot problem, the clarification of the problem and the statement of claim are reproduced. It is a useful tool in the teaching of international commercial arbitration law and in the teaching of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. It also serves as a historical record of the Willem C Vis International Arbitration Moot 1996-97.
