As many of you know, Pace Law School, largely due to the extraordinary efforts of Pace Prof. Eric Bergsten, founded the Vis Moot competition more than 30 years ago. Prof. Bergsten passed away last summer at the age of 92. I am passing along the below call for tributes to Prof. Bergsten from Pace’s International Law Review.

The Pace International Law Review is looking to incorporate tributes dedicated to the memory of Prof. Dr. Eric E. Bergsten, a long-time fixture of the international program and founder of the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot in its next blog publication. Whether this be a piece about a personal experience with Prof. Bergsten, a comment on his career, his impact on Pace Law School, or other topics you may deem fit for a tribute. Those interested should submit pieces of 1,000 – 1,500 words to Madison Lane ([email protected]) or Ishani Sanyal ([email protected]) by ​June 22, 2024. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Madison or Ishani.
