Registration of Arbitrators

Can you assist the 2022 competition by acting as volunteer arbitrator, or by undertaking some other form of assistance?

We are seeking members of the maritime industry and legal profession, both in Asia and beyond, to assist us with this exciting and prestigious competition. We know that the students value the support of the lawyers and arbitrators who act as arbitrators during the moots, as the presentation of their oral arguments is the culmination of months of effort and the pinnacle of the competition. Arbitrators will be provided with a bench brief summarising the issues well before the event. Issues of arbitration practice are involved, as well as commercial law. Arbitrators need not have an understanding of maritime law. Each panel will be allocated at least one member who is a maritime law specialist.

In 2022, the competition will be held virtually. To enable us to schedule the moots, please indicate the windows you are available. All the times mentioned are AWST (Perth).

I am willing to assist by acting as an arbitrator in the 2022 International Maritime Law Arbitration Moot.
