IBA – VIAC CDRC Mediation &
Negotiation Competition

The Global Consensual Dispute Resolution Competition

University of Vienna


Consensual Dispute Resolution. The next level of skill set and a core competency for future dispute resolution experts.

Especially international commercial mediation and negotiation are the consensual dispute resolution processes of choice that allow parties to remain autonomous in, and in full control of, their commercial and business decision making.

The IBA – VIAC CDRC Mediation & Negotiation Competition is the leading global consensual dispute resolution moot competition, attracting top students annually to Vienna. Benefitting greatly from the experience and knowledge of, and guidance by, the world-leading consensual dispute resolution experts, competitors can develop and hone their skills, experience and brilliance in international commercial mediation.


Our 5-day innovative educational moot unites global university teams in a thrilling contest as we celebrate mediation and negotiation. World-leading experts from law, academia, and business, are part of the action, sharing their knowledge, insight, experience and passion.


Education and training are our mission. Integral elements of the competition are a pre-moot conference, workshops, classes, and other training and practice sessions guided by our experts. They are open to all participants and some can also be attended by the public.


We connect people. We connect ideas. We connect potential. We create opportunities. We take networking seriously and organise receptions, lunches, breakfasts and dinners so that participants can meet, exchange and expand their networks.
