The International Maritime Law Arbitration Moot (IMLAM) involves a dispute relating to commercial maritime law and the controversy is determined before an arbitral tribunal. Students need not have previously studied maritime law (though it is an advantage) and in fact several past winning teams have had no prior knowledge of maritime law before undertaking the moot. 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.

The 2020 IMLAM competition will be held in Singapore in June/July.

Applications for the 2020 season close 7 August 2019.

Students interested in applying should upload the following documents:

  • Curriculum Vitae (no more than 2 pages)
  • An expression of interest explaining their motivation for applying (1 page)
  • Academic transcript

 

Students will receive a grant to cover a portion of their airfare to the competition. Registration and accommodation is provided by the Law School.

Students participating in IMLAM will be automatically eligible for 2# of course credit.
