About the Moot Competition
Though it has been difficult to scuffle through these anomalous times, mooters are nothing if not adaptable. The organisers strive to provide a platform to the students to imbibe the pragmatic skills and this moot court is one such exclusive attempt to create a simulated atmosphere for the future Lawyers. The objective is to allow the students to delve into intersections of emerging International issues.
The moot court will simulate proceedings before the International Court of Justice (ICJ). The competition will be a unique opportunity to discuss fascinating issues of law of the sea, and also to engage with the many procedural facets of international dispute settlement. The case typically involves complex issues of international law, ranging from State responsibility to the law of the sea and maritime rights.
Hosting its 10th edition is like moving to the next orbit. With this event, the organisers level up from National to International level and from traditional mooting to online mooting. This moot will provide a stage for converging to the Indian diversity & global diversity. Students from across continents will hone their mooting skills during this 3-day program and will have a cross-cultural exposure.
