  1. Can u provide me an example of an essay or a sample of it like how to start an essay when you have to write it for such competitions?

    • If you try and read the very first sentence one more time which clearly states “students who are pursuing their B.A.LLB./LL.M./Ph.D./M.Phil. or any other Undergraduate or Master courses (other than Law) in any university across the World.”, I’m pretty sure that your query will be resolved.

  2. My personal experience with the competition has been very different. Certificate, prize money, and the book in which winning essays were published were handed over with no hassle at all.

  3. Admin: I was talking about the previous AD-IDEM competitions..
    And this is the case with atleast last two editions of the competition (personal experience + friends’ experience)

  4. Hell yeah!
    They are least interested in entertaining any query. Plus certificates…they are lost somewhere in the middle of the junk!

    • The last date for submission of entries is Aug 20.

      Well, you can’t get a certificate for something not over yet!

      • I’m quite sure that he is talking about his previous experience on this same competition. One of my friends suffered from the same issue. Seems that they are extremely careless when it comes to issuing the certificates or sending these certificates to the participants. My friend participated in this competition somewhere around last year and still hasn’t received any certificate. All he got was a quick snap of the certificate which was mailed to him (pretty useless IMO).

  5. RGNUL Patiala you may be one of the 11 NLU’s but both the competitions AD IDEM and ENSAYO organisers did not cooperate with us and are not providing the certificates also. This kind of behaviour for a college like you is not good and you should do something about it.
