3rd International Moot Competition on Maritime Arbitration


The Center for International Law and Justice (Odessa, Ukraine) is pleased to invite law schools to compete in the 3rd International Moot Competition on Maritime Arbitration.
This year the moot case concerns number of issues at the forefront of economy affairs. Prominent Ukrainian Law Firm “International Law Offices” have kindly provided the Center with Moot Case which was developed as close to the real dispute as it is possible. The teams are challenged to present positions of Owners and Charterers according to the LMAA rules. The core problem lays in refusal to pay demurrage charges, arguing that the existing situation has been an exclusion from the GENCON charter uniform. Participants should analyze factual background, legal reasoning of both sides, documents (Notice of Readiness, Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce and Industry references, Charter, Arbitral Clause), correspondence, actual Rules of procedure, etc.

Deadline for registration is 31 of December. Participation fee is 200 euro per team and includes meals and lodging (from March 16 to 18, 2012), at the Ukrainian style wooden hotel “Kolyba”.
