 About International Maritime Arbitration Moot (IMAM)

The International Maritime Arbitration Moot (IMAM) is the first in India and the third in the world to have maritime law as its principal subject area. The moot aimed to enhance research and advocacy skills of students in the area of Maritime Law and International Commercial Arbitration. So far, the moot has witnessed eight successful editions with the enthusiastic participation of teams from all across the country. With each new edition, the University strives to present a more demanding debate for its participants in
order to reach new heights.
For the last eight years, NLUO has successfully organized its flagship moot, the “International Maritime Arbitration Moot (IMAM),” attracting some of the brightest minds and sharpening their advocacy abilities in the burgeoning fields of maritime law and arbitration.


The 9th IMAM 2022 seeks to make strides in the experience by ensuring that the teams are met with a challenging problem related to the contemporary areas of maritime law and have the opportunity to face a veteran and engaging panel of judges. Owing to the developing interest in the field of maritime law, the
competition, as has always been, will be dealing with multifarious aspects of maritime law. The competition case study of 9th International Maritime Arbitration Moot is being drafted by our Associate Partner- the Institute of International Shipping and Trade Law, Swansea University.
The competition is tentatively scheduled to be held from 24th to 27th March We are hopeful of conducting the moot on campus, providing the participants with an unsurpassable mooting experience. Yet, we are pragmatic and wary of the compelling circumstances which may eventually lead to the moot being conducted online.
