Vis Moot International Commercial Arbitration in Vienna, a competition John Marshall students have participated in in the past.

Chicago law firm Chuhak & Tecson P.C. purchased shirts for the team to wear at the competition. The team is coached by John Marshall graduates Kristen Hudson (’03), who serves as a principal and general counsel at Chuhak & Tecson, and Daniel Saeedi (’08), who serves as a partner at Taft Stettinius & Hollister LLP. Both Hudson and Saeedi competed at the Vienna version of the competition when they were law students.
