12th (1st Virtual) Breakfast Rounds 2021

As the 11th Breakfast Rounds had to be cancelled in March 2020 due to the Corona crisis, we are now even more happy to announce that the 12th (1st Virtual) Breakfast Rounds will take place on 23rd March 2021! 


So SAVE THE DATE for the virtual hearings on Tuesday, 23rd March 2021 beginning at 11.00 am CET (Berlin Time). We will invite 8 teams for two rounds of virtual hearings with highly professional and ‘Moot-experienced’ lawyers from practice as well as from academia. Preliminary schedule:


11.00 am – 11.15 am (CET) Virtual Reception


11.15 am – 12.30 pm (CET) 1st Round


12.45 pm – 2.00 pm (CET) 2nd Round


4.00 pm Announcement of the Winning Team via Social Media


The Breakfast Rounds have a long tradition and have shown to be one of the best practical trainings just a few days before (virtual) Vienna. So take your chance to finalize and strengthen your arguments right before the general and knock-out rounds in virtual Vienna and REGISTER NOW or UNTIL 14th February 2021 for your participation in the 12th (1st Virtual) Breakfast Rounds.


For your team registration or registration as an arbitrator, please contact Svenja Langenhagen via Mail  (breakfastrounds@uhh-vismoot.de).


Please let us know about the opposing teams for the general rounds in virtual Vienna as soon as possible since we are taking Section 85 of the Vis Rules for the 28th Willem C. Vis Moot very serious. 


Unfortunately, due to the virtual format of the event, we cannot offer breakfast in person. Yet, the participating teams can expect another little surprise.


Approval of Participation will be announced approximately until 21st February 2021.

Cancellation of the 11th Breakfast Rounds


We are very sorry to inform you that this year's Breakfast Rounds at the Faculty of Law at the University of Hamburg on 31 March 2020 have to be cancelled due to the developments concerning Covid-19. This step was necessary as our University and the Vis Moot Alumni Universität Hamburg e.V. always focus on the health and the safety of all participants of this event.


Even if we can't see each other on site this year, we are already looking forward to seeing you again in 2021 in Hamburg and celebrating the spirit and strength of the Willem C. Vis Moot. We wish all teams participating in the oral hearings good look - stay safe and healthy!

10th Breakfast Rounds - Anniversary 2019

The Breakfast Rounds were a true success again!


This year the Vis Moot Court Alumni Universität Hamburg e.V. in cooperation with the CAM-CCBC celebrated together with 14 teams from all over the world the 10th anniversary of the Breakfast Rounds. All team members, coaches and arbitrators enjoyed the event including two pleadings sessions as well as a large breakfast which gave all participants the opportunity to get in touch with each other. 


We are looking forward to hosting the next Breakfast Rounds in 2020 and welcoming again so many international and high profile students from all over the world. Thanks to all team members, coaches, arbitrators, alumni and all other supporters of the event for their efforts and dedication! 

Breakfast Rounds 2018


On the morning of the 20th March 2018 we, the Vis Moot Court Alumni Association of the University of Hamburg, organized the 9th Breakfast Rounds.

Nine Vis Moot Teams from all over the world including India, Iran, Canada, Brazil and Germany took the chance of some extra rounds and some final feedback before heading to the finals in Vienna.


Complemented by a welcoming breakfast for all teams and arbitrators, two successful pleading rounds were held in the premises of the Faculty of Law at the University of Hamburg. We hope that all participating teams enjoyed the time in Hamburg and we would like to thank all teams for their participation. Furthermore, we would like to thank all supporting law professors, alumni and the team of the University of Hamburg for their help and dedication. We could not have organized such fantastic Breakfast Rounds without these helping hands.


After such great Breakfast Rounds this year, we are looking forward to organizing the 10th Breakfast Rounds next year!
