ABOUT THE ORGANISATIONS
Students for the Promotion of International Law (SPIL), Mumbai at Government Law College, Mumbai, as the name suggests, is a student body which cynosures International Law. With an increasing need for awareness in the field of International Law, we maintain that such awareness is put into an impetus through the diverse events we conduct within the versatile subject of International Law. At SPIL, we take a novel approach for Students and Academia alike, to let them be a part of the discourse, to explore the magnificently huge sphere of International Law, while always keeping in mind the grey and equivocal areas of the subject and attempting to abridge the same.
Lawctopus.com, our exclusive media partner, started in 2010 is India’s leading website for law students, legal academicians, and young lawyers. With nearly 200,000 readers a month, and 60,000 (growing by 100 a day) email subscribers, Lawctopus is trusted and loved by the Indian legal community.

ABOUT THE WEBINAR
Topic: “Understanding the International Law Question in the Enrica Lexie’s Arbitration between India and Italy”
MV Enrica Lexie is an Italian Aframax oil-tanker. Built in 2008, the Enrica Lexia was involved in the shooting of two Indian fisherman in the Laccadive Sea off the coast of Ambalapuzha in Kerala on February 5, 2012. The tanker was taken to the port of Kochi under escort by the Indian Coast Guard, and was allowed to leave 80 days later after the owners posted a surety bond. This initiated a long drawn legal saga between India and Italy.
The first part of the Webinar explains facts related to the killing of fishermen onboard St. Anthony’s vessel and various institutional arbitration options available under the International Law of the Sea, and
In the second part, a discussion on the case, interpretation of UNCLOS articles and Indian laws relevant to the case, and how the invocation of the concept of ‘incidental jurisdiction’ prejudiced India’s arguments in this case.
Date and Time: October 17th at 6:00 PM IST and October 18th at 12:00 PM IST
