The University is honoured to introduce its maiden event titled “1st Justice G.P. Singh Memorial National Moot Court Competition, 2021”.
About the Moot
The title of the moot reveres Hon’ble Justice G P Singh (1922- 2013), one of the finest and legendary Judges of India, who was not only former Chief Justice of Madhya Pradesh High Court but had also been the Governor of Madhya Pradesh twice, after which he acted as the Chairman of Madhya Pradesh Law Commission and Lokayukta of Madhya Pradesh.
Apart from holding positions of such profound significance, he had written a highly acknowledged and widely revered book, ” Principles of Statutory Interpretation” which contains critical analyses of important Indian and English decisions with references to authoritative foreign works such as Bennion on Statutory Interpretation.
