HNLU Raipur defeated NLU Jodhpur in the finals of the first edition of NLIU Juris Corp Moot Court Competition, taking HNLU to joint 5th place in MPL Season 2, whereas last season’s number four NLU Jodhpur has moved to joint 19th spot.

RGNUL Patiala and CNLU Patna were the two semi-finalists. CNLU also won the best-memorandum award. While RGNUL moved to 14th spot, CLNU became 26th college to enter the MPL Standings.

NLIU MCA Convenor Shantanu Tyagi said that the competition was one of its own kind, with 22 teams participating, 29 judges to judge the preliminary rounds alone and another 9 judges to judge the Quarter and Semi Finals. The Finals were judged by a bench comprising of Hon'ble Mr. Justice Deepak Verma, Judge, Supreme Court of India, Hon'ble Mr. Justice Satish C. Sharma, Judge, Indore bench of Madhya Pradesh High Court and Mr. H. Jayesh, Founder Partner, Juris Corp, advocates & solicitors, Mumbai, he said.
