Stetson South sees NLS Bangalore, Bhopal race to top mooting league


Kerala Law Academy won the Stetson South India Rounds last weekend, qualifying for Florida's Stetson World Finals in March 2010 alongside runners-up New Law College Pune.

The Kerala Law Academy Thiruvananthapuram team of Deepa A, Janapriya D and Parvathy. S.S. came out on top of 16 teams from across South India at Bangalore's Bishop Cotton Women's Christian Law College.

This puts Kerala Law Academy in seventh rank with 10 points in Legally India's Mooting Premier League.

The moot problem concerned marine mammals and ocean noise.

A team from New Law College Bharati Vidyapeeth University Pune, consisting of Avinash Kumar, Bharat Maheswari and Nimit Mathur came in second place, scoring 7 points in the Mooting Premier League.

Bishop Cotton moot court association faculty-in-charge Koeli Mandal said that the Kerala team triumphed after a tough competition.

NLIU Bhopal's team of Ankur Khandelwal, Chetan Kanungo and Anurag Solanki was ranked fourth overall in the Stetson South India rounds but bagged the best memorial prize.

Lalu John Philip of NLSIU Bangalore won in the best student advocate category.

The results mean 7 points for both NLSIU Bangalore and NLIU Bhopal, which are drawing ahead of the chasing pack, with Bhopal nipping at NLSIU Bangalore's heels.

NLSIU scored highly in two categories in the tier 1 Manfred Lachs Space Moot last month. NLIU Bhopal performed strongly in two tier 4 moots.

The team from Nalsar Hyderabad ranked overall third in Stetson's South India Rounds.

The Stetson North India Rounds will be held next week, with two more spots for the Stetson World Finals at stake, as well as 31 more points in the Mooting Premier League.
