About the Lex Omnia Moot

6th edition of the Lex Omnia Moot Court Competition, hosted by BITS-Pilani K.K. Birla Goa Campus, Goa, India, in association with NLSIU, Bangalore.

Dates

The Competition is scheduled to be held from 26th – 28th October, 2018.

Details

Lex Omnia started in the year 2013 as a humble competition seeing reasonable participation. Over the years the participation has grown to more than 50 teams from across the country and we hope to see it increase further.

The teams are required to send memorials 23 days before the oral rounds start which are then evaluated to shortlist 36 qualifying teams. The competition is rigorous as the qualifying teams of equal calibre compete against each other in multiple oral rounds.

Spread over 3 days, the oral rounds comprise eliminations on the first day out of which 8 teams make it through to the quarter finals. Both the quarter and semi-finals are held on the second day and the best two teams qualify for the final rounds.

The prizes are given to the best team, runners up, best student advocate, and best memorial. The rounds are evaluated by advocates and judges from district and high courts of Goa and nearby areas.

The Moot Court Organizers of Lex Omnia Moot Court on behalf of BITS-Pilani K.K. Birla Goa Campus would like to invite your esteemed University/College to participate in this fulfilling experience.

  1. Hey Lawctopus team, Being the social media partner of the 6th Lex-Omnia moot, I believe that you guys must be aware of all what happened at this event. I was also a participant to the competition, and I support each and every word that Arpit has stated in the previous comment. Although, I won’t blame it on you guys for an event that was blundered by the corrupt and inefficient organizers from BITS Goa and SLS Pune. But being a partner to a cause definitely, create some obligations on your part too! The belief and confidence of the student fraternity on Lawctopus is the sole reason for your growth story. And with the love, we’ve given to lawctopus over the years, I consider myself entitled to ask some questions to you too so that looking for the answers you learn from the mistakes that have been committed!
    1. What is a Social media partner? Does it mean to report what and how happened at the event?
    2. Was there any representative present at the event to report it for the website? If not, were the organizers obliged to send the details of how the competition concluded?
    3. Has Lawctopus asked from the organizers the list of the winning teams and the copy of the best memorials?
    4. Has Lawctopus ensured that the complimentary prize of SCC Online’s membership for a month been given to the participants?
    5. Have the steps been taken by Lawctopus (being an active participant in the legal education industry) to ensure that the sanctity of law and a moot court is not withered by institutes like BITS Goa using it as a fundraiser event for their annual fests and misappropriating the funds?

    Mr. Kalia we the student fraternity has given all that Lawctopus ever needed to reach such heights, make sure you and your team are reciprocating the same.
    Looking for a quick response from the team.

    1. Hi Jasmeet, am guessing your experience of the moot was not good. We’ll be happy to investigate further. My responses are in bold.-Tanuj

      Hey Lawctopus team, Being the social media partner of the 6th Lex-Omnia moot, I believe that you guys must be aware of all what happened at this event.

      Sorry, unfortunately, we aren’t. We’ll research more after this comment.

      I was also a participant to the competition, and I support each and every word that Arpit has stated in the previous comment. Although, I won’t blame it on you guys for an event that was blundered by the corrupt and inefficient organizers from BITS Goa and SLS Pune. But being a partner to a cause definitely, create some obligations on your part too! The belief and confidence of the student fraternity on Lawctopus is the sole reason for your growth story.

      And with the love, we’ve given to lawctopus over the years, I consider myself entitled to ask some questions to you too so that looking for the answers you learn from the mistakes that have been committed!

      Can you please tell us what mistake we’ve committed? Assuming that the moot was managed badly, we couldn’t have ‘predicted’ it for sure. And if it has been done badly, please do a more detailed post on it and we’ll be happy to publish it .

      1. What is a Social media partner? Does it mean to report what and how happened at the event?

      We weren’t ‘social media partners’. We were media partners. It means we help them promote the event.

      2. Was there any representative present at the event to report it for the website? If not, were the organizers obliged to send the details of how the competition concluded?

      No. We are based out of Chandigarh and other than campus leaders (which we currently don’t have), we don’t have any ‘representatives’. No organiser is obliged to send any such report.

      3. Has Lawctopus asked from the organizers the list of the winning teams and the copy of the best memorials?

      No, we usually don’t. If the organisers/winning teams send us the copies, we are happy to publish them. Sometimes we give ‘tasks’ to campus leaders of interviewing the best mooters in their college and/or collect prize-winning memorials.

      4. Has Lawctopus ensured that the complimentary prize of SCC Online’s membership for a month been given to the participants?

      Sorry, but we can’t assure that. As a media platform for law students, it’s our duty to publish comments like these (or full-fledged posts if you write one) but unfortunately we can’t ‘assure’ commitments of third parties.

      5. Have the steps been taken by Lawctopus (being an active participant in the legal education industry) to ensure that the sanctity of law and a moot court is not withered by institutes like BITS Goa using it as a fundraiser event for their annual fests and misappropriating the funds?

      BITS Goa is a renowned institution and holding of moots etc. by then only encourages more inter-disciplinary spaces. Also, we don’t do activism or advocacy (for now). Again, we’ll happy to publish a more detailed blog post on this if you (or others) write one.

      Mr. Kalia we the student fraternity has given all that Lawctopus ever needed to reach such heights, make sure you and your team are reciprocating the same.

      Looking for a quick response from the team.

      Sure, thanks for the trust!

  2. The worst moot court experience I have ever had. Bunch of illiterate engineers organising a moot court competition. Shame in BITS Pilani.

    There was a flaw in the scoring, which more than 10 teams believed. The result was tempered with. No signature of judges on the scoresheets.
    Even after 4 hours of fighting, they denied to show the scoresheets. Even the scoring pattern mentioned in the rulebook want followed which they themselves admit.

    We were judged by a bunch of engineers having no knowledge of law. No faculty involved. In case of a dispute, the organiser, Ms. Kalyani Menon says, “I am the organiser of this moot competition, but I have no responsibility as to any dispute”.

    Paid Rs. 9000 for a shitty non ac accommodation and an experience where you are cheated.

    And so called EXPERTS from Symbiosis Law School Pune had just one thing to say, that we are no one here, talk to organisers.

    Thanks to NLSIU Bangalore for their unconditional support in convincing the organisers to show the scoresheets “after a week when everything cools down” and new scoresheets are prepared.
