The Public International Law Webinar Series: The Ever-Expanding Remit of UNCLOS Tribunals
This event will commence with the keynote speakers, Professor Shotaro Hamamoto and Professor Simon Chesterman, two leading thinkers and practitioners in public international law sharing their views on issues of legitimacy in the international legal order.

The keynote addresses will then be followed by a panel discussion on the ever-expanding remit of Tribunals constituted under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). At the heart of UNCLOS is a comprehensive dispute settlement system that has been called upon to address a range of disputes concerning the interpretation and application of UNCLOS. This webinar will examine recent jurisprudence of UNCLOS Tribunals and will assess the extent to which these decisions have expanded their remit. Issues to be addressed include the apparent expansion of UNCLOS Tribunal jurisdiction, the ability of UNCLOS Tribunals to make incidental determinations, applicable law in UNCLOS disputes, and the application of UNCLOS to freedom of navigation operations.
