We, Francisco Aguilar, Pascal Rösch and Esra Varlioglu, will represent the University of Marburg as the 12th Marburg team at the 27th Willem C. Vis Moot Court. We see this competition as a great opportunity to develop ourselves not only professionally, but also on a personal level. We are looking forward to the new experiences and challenges that await us.

Francisco Aguilar, 21, has been studying law at the University of Marburg since the 2017/18 winter semester.

He graduated from school with an International Baccalaureate Certificate with English, German and biology as his high-level courses. Three years ago, after moving away from his beloved Latin-America to Germany and starting his studies, he developed an interest for international business law. He is fluent in Spanish, German and English. In his free time, he loves reading Latin-American literature, playing football and spending time with his friends.
