If selected, the ARF will be expected to research and write on topics related to oceans law and policy under the guidance of the Programme, Emeritus Professor Prof Robert Beckman and/or other senior members of the Oceans Law and Policy Team. The ARF may also be expected to help with organization of conferences and workshops related to their scholarly work. The key deliverable of the ARF is a research paper which the ARF will be expected to present at the end of the Programme. 

    CIL welcomes applicants who have an LLM in public international law and/or maritime law and who have working experience in an academic research institute, international organization or government agency. Government officials from ASEAN member states with the relevant experience are strongly encouraged to apply.
