About the Moot
Law and Technology have often shared a unique relationship. Not only does law seeks to govern various operational aspects in the usage of technology, it has also used technology for the purposes of its implementation. Technological advancements have often posed various challenges to law which the latter is frequently struggling with. This often brings us to a pertinent question as to whether law regulates technology or technology operates the implementation of law.
The School of Law, Bennett University is conducting its first National Moot Court Competition which revolves around this theme of law and technology focusing on the use of artificial intelligence in drones. The competition aims to dwell upon this infamous relationship between Law and Technology and its implication on the legal system.
Only regular students enrolled in a five-year integrated undergraduate law programme or three-year graduate law programme are eligible to register for the competition.
