My experience at Gujarat National Law University International Maritime Academy is a unique environment for intellectual discourse and sharing of knowledge in the common heritage of maritime laws and Law of the Sea. My participation has been a truly unique and professional development in the law of the sea comparable to the very best in any other maritime law Academy. It is an experience that will forever be with me especially the beautiful and awesome Indian hospitality.

Matovu Baker. I can sum up my experience in the 2018 GIMA Program in a three-factor typology: it is an insightful, thought provoking and futuristic program. This is not only envisaged from the fact that the program is multi-faceted, but also brings to board great experts upon which researchers and participants can devise feasible strategies to sustainably manage our maritime space and/or environment. This I think is a cornerstone upon which we can crop out acceptable ideas to manage our spatial resources across the politico-economic-social divide irrespective of location and space. I must say thank you for all especially the fun time

The GNLU International Maritime Academy is a gift from Poseidon as it presents a frontier upon which practitioners, scholars and students find profound relevance in the application of core principles of the common heritage of mankind and intergenerational justice as was evident in the themes interrogated. Indeed, such contribution to my development cannot be quantified but can be summed in the hope that this Academy shall endeavour to benefit more participants. In hindsight, the activities and field trips were well placed to give the Indian flair of life which also fitted well in the discussions. May Neptune accord GIMA a long and satisfactory life.

It was a great experience to be part of GIMA-2018.This academy was unique as all the experts from the maritime industry were teaching us. It was a more practical learning rather than theoretical one, especially the port visit. I would also like to thank the organizing committee for their excellent hospitality during my stay. God Bless you all and keep the good work on.

Having the opportunity to participate in the GIMA 2018, I had the privilege of meeting and spending time with the most vibrant and experienced multinational participants with various experiences from their countries. The Activity and field trips were well placed. I would like to especially thank the coordinating team of GNLU, GIMA. I am so thankful for the benefit of their expertise and experience, but what means the most here in this campus is that they not only know your name, but they actually want to get to know you.

The GNLU International Maritime Academy has been a positive thought provoking experience within the realm of the Law of the Sea. Going by the 2018 Academy theme, the tutorials from the experts put into keen consideration the diverse international flavour of the participants in the maritime industry. The professional and social interactions with the GNLU faculty and academy will forever be invaluable.
