GNLU Gandhinagar registered another set of points in the penultimate moot of the MPL VII and has won its first ever MPL victory in what was clearly the most competitive MPL season in the history of all MPL seasons.

After another dry spell, the 7th edition of the Mooting Premiere League finally officially has a winner! Gujarat’s GNLU Gandhinagar fought relentlessly throughout this season, holding on to its 13-week long domination over the MPL tables to finally win it.

With this victory, GNLU joins NLSIU Bangalore, Nalsar Hyderabad and NLU Jodhpur to become the 4th Indian law school to win the MPL crown in this eventh season of the MPL.

The Final Nail in the Coffin and ELSA WTO Closure

After having won the Asia Pacific Rounds of the ELSA WTO Moot, GNLU Gandhinagar broke into the Quarter-Finals at the world rounds of the toughest international trade law moot, with their speaker Rushal Shah winning the best speaker citation. The other Indian team at the moot, NLU Jodhpur could not proceed beyond the preliminary rounds. The GNLU team comprised of Rushal Shah, Meera Manoj, Ishan Javid and Surabhi Saboo.

Points awarded at ELSA WTO World Rounds 2017:

Best Speaker: 8 Points (GNLU)

IMLAM and Nalsar’s Valiant Last Effort

Post GNLU’s ELSA performance, for Nalsar Hyderabad to win the MPL VII crown, the International Maritime Law Arbitration Moot 2017 was a make or break moot. While the Nalsar team broke 5th into the Quarter-Finals of the moot, they lost the round to eventual winners, National University of Singapore. No other Indian team could break post the preliminary rounds or win an MPL recognized individual/team citation.

Please change your points system. SLS got 7th place only through domestic moots while Jessup and Vienna stars got placed below. You cannot give more weightage to a gold medal in the National Games versus a bronze medal in the Olympics.

How about 20 gold medals in national games vs 1 bronze in Olympics?

Or, take the Olympics countries medal tables, for instance, where gold-silver-bronze are worth 3-2-1 points (or 4-2-1, I don't quite remmber).

So, a country that wins 10 bronze, would top a country that won 3 gold. Is that fair? No idea, but it's a valid system, as long as the rules are known ahead of time...

The MPL existed first and foremost to encourage the national mooting ecosystem of India. Devaluing national moots to the point of irrelevance would make 90% of mooting activity going on in India valueless, MPL-wise.

However, if your argument is that certain national moots (maybe tier 5?) should we weighted less heavily, please suggest alternative scorings that would be better, because it's an option.

However, I think there is strong proof in the pudding here with the final rankings, which prove it's pretty much impossible to win the MPL just with national moots, and that it's also impossible to win the MPL by just performing well internationally without strong domestic performances.

The top 4+ teams have done both of the above and I think their positions are well deserved.

Also, ask yourself, if RGNUL or RMLNLU or HNLU or any other NLU was in seventh position with the same results as SLS Pune, would it create as much controversy and anger from a small number of readers? If not, why not?

Many international moots were also devalued by Legally India. For example the Oxford IP moot is world class and has law lords judging the final. The quarters/semis etc are judges by top academics and barristers. It's number 1 in IP. The number 1 moot in any subject should be tier 2 at least.

Also it is unfair that Symbi did well only in T4 and T5 moots. This makes a mockery of the system. And yes it is unfair to keep RGNUL and HNLU out because a wrong message is being sent the Symbi is better than NLUs.

Kian you are totally wrong. In Olympics the medal tally is decided by golds and silvers won. If A wins 3 gold and 0 anything else, B wins 1 silver and zero anything else, and C wins 50 bronze medals, A will be 1, B will be 2, C will be 3.

In this case, Symbi won zero Olympic medals, only medals in national competitions. NLUO and Jindal won the equivalent of Olympic silvers and NLUJ won an Olympic bronze. So they should be higher.

Another way to put it: 50 runs in an international test is better than 200 in a Ranji match.

Ah yes, right you are re Olympics of course, my error.

Notwithstanding Olympics, in the case of the MPL, I don't think it makes sense that 1 victory internationally should trump 50 national moot wins, for argument's sake.

Then, at least as far as MPL, why should any college even bother competing in the nationals, if all they are is tie-breakers when 2 colleges have identical tier 1 points?

Tier 5 and 4 moots need to have points, unless the MPL is completely reinvented. And if they have points, it's always possible a team will get into the top 10 purely with domestic moots. I don't think that's an undesirable outcome, at all.

But like I said, happy to hear practical suggestions.

Despite paid news Legally India's best attempts to fix MPL and make Symbi win, they finished 7th. But that too is ridiculously high, as it places them over NLUO (Jessup semis), Jindal (Vienna finals) and NLUJ (multiple international moots).

Friends, please ignore this ranking and look at the broader picture (placements, infra, faculty, moot record over past 5 years etc). Based on this, this is the actual ranking:

1) NLSIU
2) NALSAR
3) NLUD
4) NUJS
5) GNLU
6) NLUJ
7) NLIU
8) RGNUL

Congratulations to GNLU and their mooters! Curious to know what happened with Jodhpur this year. Winners last years and consistently one of the top 4 MPL ranks over the years. Are the post 2017 batches really as disinterested as we've heard? Or is this down to the MCC or the administration?

Four reasons:

1)Student quality going down. Various reasons for this.

2) More competition, tougher to win. Other than newer NLUs like NLUD, GNLU and NLUO you also have JGLS, which has good faculty training them.

3) Admin not supportive.

4) Lack of alumni involvement, though the onus is on the admin to invite alumni.

I do notice a systemic lack of coverage of NLIU Bhopal's Mooting performance this year - despite being one of the few (only?) law schools to have done exceedingly well at both Jessup Worlds as well as Vis Vienna; in addition to its continuing its hot-streak at NUJS-HSF, NLSArb and Oxford Price Media.

Hi,

Re NLIU's Jessup and Vienna citations, we did cover the same extensively during the live-coverage. Also, please read some here- http://www.legallyindia.com/mooting/after-global-onslaught-by-nluo-jgls-nliu-we-tally-up-the-mpl-ranking-damage-with-some-citations-palkhivala-and-more-20170417-8451

Regarding, NLSTIAM, we tend to shape the headlines based on the winner/runners-up (rarely).
Also, NUJS-HSF was covered as a part of the Mega-MPL Weekend, and NLIU didn't make headlines since we emphasized on those colleges that obtained the maximum citations across moots. Please find the story here- http://www.legallyindia.com/mooting/mega-mpl-weekend-of-100-points-sees-symbi-pune-gnlu-ils-wreak-havoc-to-league-tables-overtake-old-nlus-20170306-8335

I assure you there has not been any conscious denial of coverage to any law school. Some times, colleges that have done very well in individual moots, haven't gotten the best coverage, because of other factors (like the one stated above). Hope the clarification helps :)
