Novice Arbitration Mooting Competition (NAMCO) is an arbitration-based mooting competition that is open to all law students who have never participated in any national or international mooting competition and are thus invited to experience the workings of arbitration as an alternative dispute resolution themselves
Aimed as a platform to groom young talents for future legal challenges, NAMCO is set to expose students to real life legal disputes. These include legal problems where the participants shall utilize meticulous applications of the law and critical thinking within both the research and oral presentation parts of the competition.
NAMCO Management LLP and NAMCO Secretariat, are co-organizing this event with the Faculty of Law – Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM). For NAMCO 2017 edition we collaborated with Thomas Philip Advocates and Solicitors and it marked the highest number of participation of 17 teams from 9 local law schools and was successfully held at the Kuala Lumpur Regional Centre for Arbitration (KLRCA) as the official venue sponsor.
