HNLU wins jackpot at HK Red Cross Moot as Symbi, ILS battle at GH Raisoni

HNLU Raipur finished runners up at the Red Cross International Humanitarian Law Moot and jumped from the eleventh position to the fifth position in the MPL 2 standings sponsored by Allen & Overy. Meanwhile Symbiosis, Pune won its first moot this season at the GH Raisoni Moot.

Red Cross Moot

The first Tier 2 moot of this season saw only one Indian team out of 20 teams globally, with HNLU having qualified after winning the Henry Dunant Moot Court Competition in September of last year.

HNLU’s team (pictured) picked up a massive 25 points for its place in the finals, taking it to fifth place in the MPL 2.

Victoria University of Wellington from Wellington, New Zealand eventually won over HNLU in the finals.

image Lucia Fan from the Hong Kong Red Cross confirmed the results and said that the teams were impressive. The moot was co-organised by the Hong Kong Red Cross (HKRC) and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in collaboration of the University of Hong Kong, City University of Hong Kong and The Chinese University of Hong Kong.

G H Raisoni

It was an all-Pune battle at Nagpur when Symbiosis Pune defeated ILS Pune in the finals of the GH Raisoni Moot.

GNLU Gandhinagar won the best memorandum award and finished as semi-finalists. Baroda School of Legal Studies was the 35th team to enter the MPL 2 by winning the best speaker award and finishing semifinalists in the moot.

Sankalp Anantwar from GH Raisoni Law School confirmed the results and said that 20 teams from all over the country participated in the moot. The moot problem was related to copyright laws.

ELSA Moot:

We have been informed that two Indian teams have won awards at the ELSA WTO Asian rounds. However, we are still waiting for an official confirmation from the organizers.

Allen & Overy is the sponsor of the MPL 2 and is hosting an international finance and corporate course at Nalsar Hyderabad between 4 and 8 July.

Jackpot does not necessarily have to do with luck - it can simply mean that its the top prize, an "outstanding reward or success", etc.

In any case, no offense was intended.

@5 - I would still argue that a jackpot is a good thing, although to some it appears to have negative connotations.

From my perspective, the more colleges that cross 100 points the merrier: we have no reason to discriminate against one college or another.

Congratulations to the NHLU team for their brilliant preformance!

Best wishes,
Kian

I do agree with Kian! Since when did Jackpot start having a negative connotation? Weird comments indeed. If you're proud of your Law School, just let it be, why blow the trumpet. By the way, congrats HNLU- well done indeed.

And Kian, please change NHLU in your comment to HNLU- people do have a lot of issues if their law school's name is not taken properly. Atleast, I would have!

Kian: I always thought someone won a jackpot by luck and not by hardwork. The heading is derogatory. I would use jackpot to say something like "Kian was such a loser at college, he won a jackpot with a job at Amarchand"...What say?

While debating headlines can become incredibly tedious, how about the following uses of "jackpot":

"Bill Gates worked superbly hard and was a childhood computer prodigy but he hit the jackpot when creating the PC-DOS operating system for IBM and retaining the copyright to it."
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Gates#IBM_partnership

Or:

"Up-and-coming film-maker George Lucas' first Star Wars film was a box office hit but he really won the jackpot when he had the foresight to retain the rights to all Star Wars spin-off licensed products and merchandise, bagging him more than $13bn in cash and counting."

Or in other words:
"HNLU hit the jackpot with its performance in Hong Kong and - the first Tier 2 Moot of the season - giving it 25 points in the MPL and propelling it up the rankings from 12th (?) place to fifth with a realistic shot now to mix up the MPL 2 top field."

In any case, as a policy, we do not normally change headlines just because they might upset a few people otherwise we would be changing headlines every other day for a law firm or other (seriously).

Again, no offense is intended nor should reasonably be inferred from the title.

Best wishes
Kian

jackpot also means:

(a)the accumulated stakes in a kind of poker that requires one to hold a pair of jacks or better in order to open the betting.
(b)A cumulative pool in a competition, lottery, or various other games.

going by this definition LI should change the headline irrespective of their policy....

According to Oxford Dictionary 2001 edition page 442

jackpot means: a large cash price in a lottery.

the origin of the word: it was first used in poker, where the pot grew until a player could open thew bidding with two jacks or better

Shame on you LI instead of humbly accepting your fault why the hell are u going on citing your policies and dictionary.

(a) no one gives a damn to your policy so don't cite them
(b) the oxford dictionary is even against you.

Change the title.

Oh God!! You guys are the most lame people on earth. Just enjoy your victory man. No one is disregarding HNLU's hardwork, when Kian is giving you justifications and explanations why you acting dumb and insisting on changing the headlines.

Grow up!! If you really want your law school to be worthy of being a top national law school then act like one. Kian cannot change headlines just because some inane individuals who have taken offense of an innocuous headline. There is nothing wrong in the headlines. Do not act like those psuedo individuals who find faults in each and everything on this earth. Seriously I am reiterating again GROW UP guys.

Moreover, if you want to interpret the word "JACKPOT", the article also refers to the number of points scored by HNLU which is 25 and its awesome and not indicating that it was by sheer dumb las vegas casino luck. Kian very understands that doing well in a moot specially a tier 2 one is not about luck.

For the love of GOD stop bickering about issues like this. You act like 5 year olds with candies man.

Thanks for your comment but just because something has two different meanings does not mean it can not be used in a headline.

Please don't quote selectively from the OED - there are dozens of alternative definitions that do not include luck and the full OED probably has 10 pages on Jackpot.

In no particular order, excluding the purely poker or casino definitions, from www.thefreedictionary.com/jackpot

hit the jackpot
to win or obtain a lot of money or success She must have hit the jackpot with the sales of her last album.

jackpot - any outstanding award
prize, award - something given for victory or superiority in a contest or competition or for winning a lottery; "the prize was a free trip to Europe"

2. A top prize or reward.

From www.macmillandictionary.com/dictionary/british/jackpot
a large unexpected success or reward

hit the jackpot
1 to win the most important prize in a competition
2 to be very successful at something
She hit the jackpot with her first novel, which sold over a million copies.


Anyway, when there is a serious factual error in our reporting or something is actually and seriously offensive we will gladly correct it. When someone objects to the words or style used in a story, we will not entertain such requests as any credible publication should and would as a matter of principle.

We will now moderate any new comments complaining about the headline unless they make an interesting and valid point, otherwise this debate risks boring everyone else to death.

Please celebrate this great result from HNLU's mooters and do not distract or diminish from their achievement.

Warm regards
Kian

Why aren't those pseudo grammarians objecting to the use of the word "Moot" in the headline? Any "self respecting" [...] student should know the colloquial derogatory meaning attributed to the word.

It seems the likes of #1,# 2 and #10 don't read the newspapers very often - and neither their English grammar and usage books. Otherwise they would know LI's usage of the headline is perfectly acceptable - and pithy (find out the meaning), too.

Kian, I am surprised that you actually bother with such sad losers.

@22-
Agreed a hyper reaction for the removal of the word may sound absurd, although it might not be the best choice of a word for a moot win, however your sarcasm just makes you sound rather sour.Those steps were taken by the student community to ensure they got what they really deserved.It isn't often that you find students being able to replace a system. I'm not dwelling into this too much, but your comment is unwarranted here.

Hi guys i was the one who first thought tht the use of the word 'Jackpot' is derogatory. To clarify certain things let me tell u that I m not from HNLU but from NALSAR. (kian can with the help of technology confirm tht the post 1 came from hyd city)

After reading all the comments above i still believe that the title is indeed a derogatory one.

Let us not go into the dictionary meaning of the word. In common parlance we indeed use this word to express one's gain, victory as a great shock to us because we never thought that such a thing could ever happen.

What I M TRYING TO POINT AT IS THIS:

Kian never expected HNLU to win this kind of tier II moot not even in his dreams. One day HNLU wins. Kian was shocked to hear that and the first word which came out of his mouth was 'JACKPOT'. Its not his fault but the fault of his sub-conscious mind which has very safely stored in it that HNLU is not tht great a law school and can never do good in even tier IV moots.

So guys my problem was not with the word jackpot but with the intention behind it. AND the justifications given by Kian have justified my doubt.

[I was debating on whether to publish this or not because it sounds like you are a troll trying to fan the flames of this discussion again by denigrating HNLU. HNLU was performing very well this season but was not in the top 5; now it is. But coming runner-up in a tier 2 moot would be a jackpot for anyone. -Kian]

Kian this isnt fair. I think my Article 19 right gives me enough privilege to express my honest opinion on a particular topic even though tht may not be pleasing to someone.

But I appreciate the fact that u published my previous comment which clearly upheld ur belief in Article 19 rights and shows ur commitment towards the profession of journalism.

And dont tell me that u not didnt even once thought that HNLU can ever win this type of moot. I have already clarified that this is not ur fault. Its the fault of our sub-conscious mind. And not the sub-conscious mind has got a message - Hey! stop thinking in tht direction.

[Thanks for your response, even though I still think that you are trolling by trying to second-guess my subconscious mind and putting down another college. For the record, I think HNLU can win any moot in India and abroad, as any other college can do too. While some colleges may have a stronger mooting culture than others, there are brilliant students everwhere. So I am not ever that surprised if a college wins a moot, as you should not be either. -Kian]

I apologize if i have not understood ur subconscious correctly but my conscious does not allow me to think otherwise especially after reading the title of the report.

But Now i reveal my intention of doing all this.

My only purpose of doing this was to make you aware tht u do sometimes tend to report in a biased manner. And after this debate I am very much confident that this type of biased reporting would be stopped even if it was subconsciously.

I once again extend my apology. Hope u will take it in the right spirit. :-)

While I think this is a non-issue, I do think the excising of comments considered to rehash what has already been said or which risk "boring everyone else to death" is harsh. It just doesn't seem like a uniform policy, considering the free hand given on subjects far less worthy.

In any case, I think LI would benefit from a policy against anonymous comments. You could ask the commenters to log in via gmail, twitter or facebook. It's been found to improve the quality of comments vastly on other websites.

All things being said and done I hereby stand to have only one question.
What is the utility of such a hot debate?
A few questions has been raised in this discussion which o would like to answer.
Some again "debated' Nalsarite has raised the issue sayong that Kian has it in the back of his mind that HNLU can never win even a National level Fourth tier moot. Hello! they have already won NLIU Juris Corp and Henry Dunant National rounds..what is wrong with you? This proves your intellect.
Secondly, when it comes to taking it as a derogatory comment, I would like to say that there is absolutely nothing derogatory in it. Even if it is, it was certainly not intentional.
Thirdly, What is the purpose of such debates?
HNLU, GNLU are in the top 10 ranks, right? But in the official ranking Symbi and Amity will seal the top 10 positions. So putting it as an inference, it is all a money game. No matter how hard you work there will be someone or the other in business sealing their fate easily. I bet anyone challenge on this.
And when it comes to holding HNLU in a position of esteem? It is clear that it is one of the best in business, after what all it went through and facing and challenging the back draws of Raipur it has a spirit like no one else. Peace.

And as for your allegation about law school, I have transcended the school and am at slave heaven (or wherever law students go after then finish their mortal time in law school). So let me tell you law schooler, get this straight from a heavenite, enjoy your law school days and dont get into meaningless fights (but if you have nothing else to do then do get into them :-)

Wow, lot of heat on this forum.

I just reviewed HNLUs performance this season. Has anyone noticed as to how most of their points have come from wins/runners positions. this tells me two things.

1. HNLU participates in very few moots, and
2. HNLU does well at the moots it participates in.

Which to me speaks volumes. Period.

And one very minor observation but one worth pondering over. HNLU has never done well in any of the Surana moots. Any ideas why?

@Kian

What about results of WTO moots. It s been over a week now. Plz update it. Nobody wants to read stale news. This should not be the attitude of team MPL. You have written that you are trying to confirm the results, but still it has not been confirmed. plz do that and update ASAP.

@45, if you are a non-HNLUite, then let me tell youy straight..it is because HNLU has never tried to fix results [...]..and nor does it need to do so..it is rising and would rise further on its own capabilities..

I was part of the only Indian Team from GNLU who ended up Runner's Up of this Competition and also won the Best Memorial way back in 2009!! We were the only Indian Team till date then to achieve such a feat in the history of the Competition!! Ours was the Best Performance by an Indian team ever in the Moot but I guess HNLU now joins us!!

Thus my Heartiest Congratulations to the HNLU team for the achievement :-) Way to go guys!!!
