This article recognizes Pace Professor Eric Bergsten’s enduring accomplishments by illuminating his signature contribution, the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Law Moot (the “Vis” or the “Moot”), as an instrument of progress toward a more robust and fair global system in which the rule of law guides the pace and path of peaceful change. While highlighting Professor Bergsten’s matchless contributions, this article also notes the roles that many other individuals have played in the shaping of the Vis because of their shared conviction that people of vision can—and should—build educational and legal institutions to improve the human condition.
