The 4th TNNLU-CCI National Online Moot Court Competition, 2021 is scheduled to be held from May 28th to May 30th, 2021.

About the Moot

Competition law is a rapidly developing field of law although being relatively new in the Indian legal sphere. The applicability of Competition law is wide and is spread across various disciplines of commerce, consumer protection, and jurisprudence of free trade and is constantly evolving. In this connection, the TNNLU – CCI Moot aims to further the vision of the CCI by promoting, sustaining, and enabling young scholars and providing a platform for engagement and discourse.

The MCC of TNNLU has been regularly conducting various inter and intra-moot court competitions since 2014. The first edition of the National Moot Court Competition was organized from 24th to 26th March 2017. In 2018, MCC collaborated with the Indian Fair-Trade Regulator, Competition Commission of India (CCI) for the first time to organize the 1st edition of the TNNLU – CCI National Moot Court Competition which saw large participation from law students all over India. The 2nd TNNLU – CCI National Moot Court Competition conducted in 2019, and the 3rd edition in 2020. This year we are happy to collaborate with CCI once again to organize the 4th edition from May 28th – 30th, 2021. The moot problem is based on ‘crisis cartelization’ during a pandemic.
