  1. if u are thinking to participate in this moot, then think again . it’s a mockery of moot courts. Last year a team which had cited only 2 cases, which were of privy council ,went to the finals. Not this the team which won the tournament and also bagged the best memo award had cited the links of newspaper in their memorials at every page. here comes the best part, the winner of the moot sucked bigtime in their arguments and every opponent team they faced were sure that they have won the round. A lot of ruckus did happen there.
    Nluo won the tournament last year. they have been winning at least one award in this moot since its inception. i am not trying to belittle NLUO or UPES over here. Both the universities easily find a place in the list of reputed law colleges of the country. Just saying that UPES shouldn’t probably organize a moot for like 2 years and take this time to introspect where they went wrong.
    Someone had to say this. No hard feelings people.
