DMH is India’s first International Moot Court Competition and started in the year 2000 as a National Moot Court Competition and has been open to international entrants since the past thirteen years and has also seen the keen participation of a number of teams from across all continents.
The case study of the competition deals primarily with issues relating to International Law, highlighting the emerging legal landscape and has been drafted by experts in the field.
The participants are made to go through extensive Mooting Rounds, to ensure that only the two best Teams reach the Final Round of Arguments. All participants are also to present their Written Submissions a month prior to the Competition.
The Moot Court Competition is conducted over 3 days where the participating teams go through two Preliminary Rounds of Argument where they would be arguing each side once, Quarter-Final Rounds of Arguments, the Semi-Final Rounds of Argument and finally, the Final Round of Arguments.
Eminent lawyers and Judges of the highest standing in India, academicians and experts in the field of International Law all converge to adjudicate the various rounds of the competition.
As in the past years, the Final Round of Arguments will once again be judged by a distinguished bench of five sitting Judges of the Hon’ble Bombay High Court who will grill the participants and evaluate their performances in a sombre real-life setting.
A unique feature of our Competition is a Panel Discussion that is held on a topic revolving around the subject of the Compromis which witnesses the representation of eminent personalities from the field of law, politics, media, etc.
The Moot Court Association of the Government Law College would like to invite a team from your esteemed University/College to participate in this enriching experience.
