[Webinar] SCMA-SAL Mock Arbitration 

18 March 2021, 3.30pm - 5.30pm


A joint event in partnership with Singapore Chamber of Maritime Arbitration (“SCMA”), the Singapore Academy of Law (“SAL”) is holding a a hybrid mock arbitration. The mock scenario is based on a fictional misdelivery of cargo and bills of lading dispute to showcase SCMA arbitration in a realistic and complex online arbitration hearing.

It is an opportunity for the audience to experience the hybrid arbitral proceedings, with roles of arbitrators and counsels being essayed by SAL's Senior Accredited Specialists and Accredited Specialists in Maritime and Shipping Law, and to see how the tribunal arrives at a decision at the end of the mock hearing. The event includes presentations by Maxwell Chambers, the Baltic Exchange and the Baltic Expert Witness Association (BEWA).

All profits from this event will go to the Singapore Shipping Tripartite Alliance Resilience (SG-STAR) Fund established by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), Singapore Shipping Association (SSA), Singapore Maritime Officers' Union (SMOU), and Singapore Organisation of Seamen (SOS). The Fund is the first global tripartite initiative bringing together like-minded international partners from the industry, unions and government to facilitate safe crew changes. The COVID pandemic has caused a crew change crisis and the Fund supports ship crew-supplying nations enhance facilities and capabilities to establish safe and scalable “bubbles” or “corridors” to enable crew change.
