The Murdoch University School of Law is delighted to invite your University to compete in the 16th International Maritime Law Arbitration Moot Competition (IMLAM) which will be hosted by our colleagues at RMIT University, Melbourne Australia.
The moot is a competition open to any law students (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 moot is exceptionally well supported by the maritime industry and maritime law firms, both international and local.
We pride ourselves on running a friendly but intellectually rigorous competition which gives a real insight into this fascinating and important area of law, as well as honing the advocacy skills of student teams. An enjoyable social program accompanies the competition to enable students to forge friendships with students from other law schools and meet with senior members of the profession and the maritime industry.
