About the Organiser

With the legacy of 38 years, NMIMS has grown to be not only one of the top-IO B-schools in India but also emerged as a multi-disciplinary, multi-campus University and fourteen constituent schools, of which Kirit P Mehta School of Law is one.

Established in the year 2013 approved by the Bar Council of India aims to provide a Law School with a global focus and international outreach dedicated to advancing human dignity, social and economic welfare, and justice through knowledge of the law. 

About the International Moot Court Competition

The first ever International Moot Court Competition was held on the theme of ‘Data Privacy’ in 2019. The second international competition was held on the theme of ‘International Environment Law’ which was originally scheduled for March 2020 but since we were hit by the pandemic, the competition was successfully concluded on a virtual platform in August 2020.

The previous edition in 2021,  which was held last year on the theme of ‘International Investment v. National Security’, saw a participation of over 200+ students from across the world with pertinent teams from international institutions being a part of the competition, along with the presence of over 60 esteemed legal luminaries from the Supreme Court, various high courts and prestigious law firms across the country.

The SVKM’s NMIMS Kirit P Mehta School of Law’s 4th International Moot Court Competition, 2022 is scheduled from August 5 to 7, 2022 on the theme of International Crimes.

The proposition for this edition has been drafted by the prestigious Mr. Ankoosh Mehta, (Partner-White Collar Crimes), Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas.

About the Theme

Theme for the 4th International Moot Court Competition is International Crimes: Humanitarian Law and War Crimes

International crimes include the most serious crimes that are a matter of global concern. The four main categories are primarily genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, and the crime of aggression.

Since these crimes affect a considerably large number of people, it becomes crucial to have laws that may help regulate situations like war and also punish those responsible for mass death and destruction. Humanitarian law also referred to as the laws of armed conflict specifically deal with and regulates the conduct of war.

War crimes may include heinous offences like killing civilians, killing prisoners of war, wartime sexual violence, committing genocide and others. Since forested offences are a serious concern globally, it becomes important to understand the intricacies. 

With this background in place, the moot proposition for the 4th International Moot Court Competition delves into the intricacies of international humanitarian law in an endeavour to unravel the underlying controversies and complexities.

The proposition thereby attempts to provide the participants with an exhilarating scenario to explore the contours of international crimes and thereby arrive at a settlement in conformation with the applicable laws and standards.
