1st TNNLU National Med-Arb Competition, 2019 [March 8-10, Trichy]: Register by Jan 31


The Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee of TNNLU is pleased to invite you all for our 1st edition of TNNLU National Med-Arb Competition, between 8th March 2019 and 10th March 2019 at our Campus. The competition is organized in collaboration with the Nani Palkhivala Arbitration Centre, Chennai.

The event will be a mindboggling rendition of the unconventional ADR mechanism, comprising of both Mediation and Arbitration sessions.

TNNLU NMAC is one of the few competitions focusing on the hybrid variety of Mediation and Arbitration (Med-Arb) under the umbrella of Alternative Dispute Resolution. In this competition, the parties will initially try to resolve their disputes through mediation based on an agreed covenant and then through arbitration. This agreed covenant will transform into a binding arbitration agreement for the arbitration session. Hence, the participating students are expected to participate and compete against each other in both Mediation and Arbitration sessions.

Participation in the competition is limited to 24 teams based on ‘First come First serve.’ The competition will take place in the following rounds:

  • The Preliminary Rounds
  • The Semifinal Rounds
  • The Final Round

TNNLU campus, Trichy.
