NILOS Moot Court Competition

Save the date: NILOS Moot Court Competition 22-23-24 May 2019

We welcome universities from all over the world for the first moot court simulating proceedings under Part XV of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. 

The research project ‘Accommodating New Interests at Sea: Legal Tools for Sustainable Ocean Governance’ (SUSTAINABLEOCEAN) aims to offer a theory of interest- and regime-interaction in ocean governance. The research question is: how can the law contribute to the sustainable use of the oceans and strike a balance between competing interests at sea? The project focuses on the interplay between the law of the sea, climate change law and energy law.
