On 23rd September 2013, Lawctopus’ editor Tanuj Kalia had received an email from one of the organizers which said, “OUS India is a voluntary organisation and it does not represent the University of Oxford in any manner whatsoever.“
We’d thought then that this was suspicious but didn’t publish anything on the matter because information about the Oxford India Moot exists on the Oxford UK website as well. See here.
However, in light of the recent blog post published on Lawctopus and on Legally India, we believe it is important to disclose this email in public interest.
Because the question then is: was the Oxford India moot organized by OUS India or the University of Oxford? And why wasn’t the official website clear on this fact?
