Expressions of Interest open for the 22nd Annual International Maritime Law Arbitration Moot 2022 virtual competition 3rd - 8th July 2022

NOTE: A new administration will be running IMLAM from August 2022. Contact details will be published on our twitter account when they come to hand.

Universities should only file an expression of interest if they firmly intend to take part.

Expressions of Interest and Registration

In 2022 we have capped the number of competing teams to twenty to assist us in managing the change to a virtual format. Teams who narrowly miss out on a place may be offered a place on a waitlist.

Participants must apply to register by submitting the Expression of Interest (EOI) form to the Moot Co-ordinator in Perth. EOIs will be accepted until Monday 1 November 2021 on or before 1600hrs (Australian Western Standard Time – GMT +8)

Submission of an EOI form by the due date does not guarantee acceptance of a team. If there are more than 20 applications, then applications will be processed

  1. in order of receipt
  2. according to geographic region (to ensure teams from a diverse mix of geographical regions participate, as has been the case in previous iterations).

    The Moot Director’s decision in this regard is final and there is no right of appeal.

Teams who have been allocated a place will be informed by 7 November 2021. Once a team has been notified that its EOI has been accepted, it must complete the registration form and pay the registration fee online in accordance with instructions that will be provided.

A team will not be registered until it has:

  • Successfully completed the EOI by the due date
  • been informed by the Moot Coordinator that the EOI has been accepted,
  • filled out the registration form and been allocated a team number, and
  • paid the registration fee.

Teams need not nominate the team members in the registration form, although it is useful to do so if the team has already been decided.

After the expressions of interest close on 1st November 2021, the moot coordinator will be in contact if your team has been selected for the registration, proceeding with payment to secure your spot in the competition.
