Novice Arbitration Mooting Competition (NAMCO) is a mooting competition hosted by NAMCO Management LLP together with NAMCO Secretariat and Faculty of Law Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM), was first held in the year 2012. NAMCO began in the minds of the founders as a platform to return to society the knowledge that they have garnered throughout years of participation in mooting competitions worldwide. The first NAMCO included participation from law schools in four Malaysian public universities including Universiti Utara Malaysia, Universiti Malaya, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia and Universiti Teknologi MARA.

This continued in 2013, where an additional Malaysian private university joined the others in the next iteration of the competition: Taylor’s University. In 2014, a total of five Malaysian public universities participated, including the original four as well as Universiti Sultan Zainal Abidin.
