The International Maritime Organization continues to support IMLI’s funding requirements. It annually provides scholarships intended for deserving government nominated candidates who wish to pursue post-graduate studies in international maritime law at IMLI.

The IMO relies on IMLI for the training of lawyers, particularly in developing States, so that  they may have the capacity to generate national legal expertise in respect of adherence to the applicable international maritime law conventions and legal instruments, implementation and incorporation of such conventions and instruments into national law, effective enforcement of the relevant national law, and proper interpretation of that national law to ensure harmonization with the international regime.
