Double victory for Zurich moot team

At the 21st Vis East Moot 2024 in Hong Kong, the RWF student team won first place for the best written submission on both the plaintiff and defendant side. This double victory out of a total of 150 teams worldwide is cause for great celebration.

At the subsequent Vis Moot 2023/2024 in Vienna, our team successfully defended its first place - this time against 373 teams from around the world - for the best written submission on the defendant's side.

This triple victory among hundreds of teams with the best students is cause for great joy. Although the Zurich teams can look back on a long history of success in the private law moot courts (since 2018 under the academic leadership of Prof Loacker and Prof Heiss), the triple is a remarkable first. Our warmest congratulations.

Blog on liability and insurance law

The leading German portal for insurance, liability and claims law offers a VersR Online Blog in which renowned experts from academia and practice comment on current topics.

Prof Dr Loacker has been a member of the blog's permanent team of authors since it was founded and has just published the article "New regulation of Swiss insurance distribution law"

We have developed a new portal.

It's aims are:

  • To collect and digitise as much material as possible on insurance contract law since 1890 and make it available in one place.
  • To present all content in a clear graphical format and in chronological order.
  • To index all documents and make them simultaneously searchable in full text.

These goals have already been largely achieved with our recently launched v1. However, we are continuing to work consistently on optimising and perfecting our offering for legal practice.
