Southampton Law School hosts the 14th International Maritime Law Arbitration Moot

Published: 4 July 2013

On 7 – 12 July 2013, the University of Southampton welcomes the competitors in this annual Moot, organised by the Murdoch University School of Law (Australia).

The 14th International Maritime Law Arbitration Moot Competition (IMLAM) has attracted a record number of universities who will compete over four days on Highfield Campus to reach the grand final which will be held in London at the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom on the afternoon of 12 July 2013.

It is fitting that the University of Southampton with its world-wide reputation for maritime law should be the first university outside the Asia-Pacific region to host this prestigious competition. It is open to any law students (either undergraduate or postgraduate) who have not been admitted to practice. The moot problem involves a dispute relating to commercial maritime law which will be determined before an arbitral tribunal pursuant to terms recognised and used in arbitration practice. 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 moot is exceptionally well supported by the maritime industry and maritime law firms, international and local. For a full list of the competition’s sponsors, visit the Murdoch University Sponsors page . We look forward to welcoming to our campus the many experienced arbitration and maritime law practitioners who will be giving generously of their time to judge the Moot. 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.
