9th NLUO Bose & Mitra & Co.
International Maritime Arbitration Moot 2022
National Law University Odisha, one of the crown jewels amongst eminent legal institutions in India, had its inception back in 2009. It is situated in the Millennium City of Odisha - Cuttack, an ancient seat of trade, and the present seat of the High Court - a potent mix of legal lineage and cultural heritage. A multitude of legal luminaries of the finest acumen, from both the bar and bench, thus trace their origins back to this city, including three former CJIs.
In the relatively short span since its establishment, NLUO has punched above its weight and has had a tremendous run in co-curriculars and extra-curriculars not limited to moots, debates, seminars, conferences, ADR competitions and even sporting meets. This continues till the present date with our pinnacle being the Semi-finalists at Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition 2017, Semifinals at the 4th Ian Fletcher International Insolvency Moot 2020 and Quarter-finalists at Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot 2021, Vienna.
Prof. Ved Kumari
At the outset, I take this opportunity to welcome you all, as we at National Law University Odisha, embark on our journey towards maintaining a conducive environment of academic ambience aiding in the enhancement of professional knowledge of the law. It is my consideration that NLUO Bose & Mitra & Co. International Maritime Arbitration Moot will aid its participants in exploring contemporary, niche areas of Maritime and Arbitration Law. Participants are faced with the daunting task of understanding grey areas of law and respond to them analytically. It will, in turn, hone their advocacy skills, preparing them for practical challenges of their competitive professional life. I have full faith, that the organising team will leave no stone unturned to make IMAM, a thrilling and unforgettable learning experience for you. I convey my best wishes to all the participants and we earnestly look forward to having you at Cuttack this March for IMAM 2021.
Prof. (Dr.) Yogesh Pratap Singh
Ever since its inception in 2014, IMAM has continued to grow at an exponential rate. The objective of providing a wholesome experience to all the participating teams is what differentiates IMAM from other moot competitions. Participants are not only provided with a platform to test their legal acumen in the contemporary and challenging core issues of Maritime law but also given a chance to augment their skills against the best teams and amongst the finest and highly acclaimed panel of arbitrators. With the same enthusiasm, I am delighted to invite you to the 8th NLUO Bose & Mitra & Co. International Maritime Arbitration Moot 2020. I am confident that with the commitment of the organising team and your unwavering support, this edition will be a tremendous success as well.
It has been my pleasure to have collaborated with the National Law University Odisha in conducting the International Maritime Arbitration Moot over the years. With every successive Moot, I have seen the levels of competition advance tremendously in terms of participation, critical analysis of complicated maritime issues, and the overall atmosphere of learning. The last edition, which keeping with the times was conducted virtually and that too, without a glitch, speaks volumes about the hosting and organisation of this Moot I, along with my entire team at Bose Mitra Co are proud to have collaborated with the University and look forward to the IMAM attaining newer heights in the coming years. Godspeed!
Bose & Mitra & Co.
