29 February - 1 and 2 March, 2024

PUCPR Curitiba – Brazil


The Pontifical Catholic University of Paraná – PUCPR will host the XIV CURITIBA PRE-MOOT, which will take place at the University campus, on March 1st and 2nd, 2024. As a warm-up, on February 29th  we will host the Latin American Chapter of the ICC Young Arbitration & ADR Forum – ICC-YAAF Latin America. 

The CURITIBA PRE-MOOT is one of the most traditional preparatory events on the path of the teams who will compete in the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot, which takes place annually in Vienna, Austria and Hong Kong, China.

For the second time, PUCPR will have the honor of hosting this great event, which is the last pre-moot to take place in Brazil before the teams leave for Europe and Asia. It is the perfect opportunity for young students to improve their advocacy skills, as well as to connect with scholars, lawyers and other young law students from other cities and countries.

The XIV CURITIBA PRE-MOOT will offer prize money and academic opportunities for the teams: 

Prize money

  • Winner: BRL 10,000.00 (ten thousand Brazilian reais)
