yCMI Essay Prize 2022
The Comité Maritime International invites submissions for the 2022 Young Persons’ Essay Prize for original unpublished writing in the field of maritime law.
The CMI Assembly has decided not to prescribe a topic for the 2022 competition in order to open up the scope of the Essay to accommodate any topic of current relevance to maritime law. Entrants are however encouraged to visit the CMI website’s pages on work in progress – which may assist in choosing a suitable topic, as preference may be given in the adjudication process to essays covering topics currently under review by the CMI.
Candidates should be:
- 35 or younger on the closing date for entries (31 March 2022); and
- A member of a CMI-member Maritime Law Association; or
- If not such an MLA member, a person actively engaged in the practice, study or research of maritime law as prescribed in the Prize Rules. This status should be confirmed by a letter from a non-CMI member MLA, university, research institute, law firm or other employer. The letter should accompany the script.
Deadline for Submission: 31 March 2022
