Remembering S.P. Sathe: 13th Taxation Law Moot 2019 by ILS Law College, Pune [March 7-9]: Preliminary Registration by Dec 31

UPDATE: The deadline for preliminary registration is extended to December 31, 2018.

About the moot

ILS Law College, Pune is organising the “Taxation Law Moot” in memory of S.P. Sathe on March 7-9, 2019.

Taxation is perceived as a vast and highly complex subject and majority of students studying law dread studying Taxation laws. Further, reluctance in taking up taxation as their areas of practice is pertinent. Consequentially, the practice of taxation is restricted to a small number of advocates even though taxations laws are one of the most extensively applicable laws in India. In order for the country to witness good taxation legal practitioners in future, it is imperative that the students are allowed a platform to understand and learn these vast and complex laws.

This Moot aims at allowing the students with an opportunity to study the niceties of the subject and acquaint themselves with the ambiguities in policies and rules pertaining to taxation through an intersection of constitutional law provisions.

It also aims at encouraging academic creativity for challenging the existing gaps in the laws and rules with regard to the taxation policies and their implementation. This will help the students to appreciate the niceties of the subject and in our most humble belief, would also kindle interest in the minds of students to take up further study or research or practice in taxation laws.


Students enrolled in a full-time bachelors (three year or five year) law programme at the time of the competition are eligible to compete in the Competition. Each College/Law School or University may enter one team only.

Two Members: both speakers,
