A regular program on the Law of the Sea and maritime issues, the Annual Institute is designed for mid-level career government officials and professionals from the academe and private sector, to train them in the Law of the Sea and familiarize them with the complexities of maritime issues. The institute would run from two to three weeks, and will involve intensive maritime affairs courses and case studies. It will also be conducted in partnership with other maritime institutions, thus giving the institute a fieldwork component, in addition to its classroom component. Foreign and local experts will also be involved in this institute targeting 30 participants at the minimum for its first few years.
