International Maritime Law Arbitration Moot
June 30, 2017 @ 9:00 am - July 5, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
The IMLAM moot is a competition open to any students enrolled in a law degree (either undergraduate or postgraduate) who have not been admitted to practice. The moot problem will involve a dispute relating to commercial maritime law and the controversy will be determined before an arbitral tribunal pursuant to the L.M.A.A. terms or other recognised terms. Students need not have previously studied maritime law and in fact several past winning teams had no prior knowledge of maritime law before undertaking the moot.
The venue for the oral competition changes every year, and generally rotates between Australia, South East Asia and Europe. The moot is exceptionally well supported by the maritime industry and maritime law firms. An enjoyable social program accompanies the competition to enable students to forge contacts with students from other law schools and meet with senior members of the profession and the maritime industry. We pride ourselves on running a friendly but intellectually rigorous competition which gives a real insight into this fascinating and important area of law, while honing the advocacy skills of student teams.
This year’s competition will be held in Singapore from 30 June to 5 July 2017 hosted by the Centre for Maritime Law, Faculty of Law, National University of Singapore.
