BCI scraps 1 of 3 Jubilee moots at NLU-J; Christ-LKS-CCI start India’s 2nd anti-trust moot

The Bar Council of India (BCI) Trust has changed its golden jubilee mooting festival plans, clarifying this week that out of the three planned moots in collaboration with Institute of Law, Nirma University, NLU Delhi and NLU Jodhpur, the latter has been cancelled by the host university.

This would reduce the number of moot to celebrate the BCI’s 50th birthday to two moots this season, which is still one more than last year, as reported by Legally India earlier this month.

BCI Trust secretary in-charge CS Kandpal said that they had received a letter from NLU Jodhpur this week. “The university had mentioned in the letter that it will not be able to organise the moot due to some uncertainties.”

Kandpal confirmed that the BCI Trust would not seek any other colleges to collaborate with this season. “There are already two moots for now. Further, we are also working on other seminars and workshops.”

The moot problems for the first of the two BCI moots this season have been released. There are four problems for each round of the moot. The problems are based on Criminal law, Company law, Environmental law and Constitutional Law. The problems can be accessed here.

Anti-Trust moots - one too many?

School of Law, Christ University announced that it is collaborating with national law firm Lakshmi Kumaran & Sridharan (LKS) and the Competition Commission of India (CCI) to organise an anti-trust moot dealing with anti-trust and competition laws. The moot is scheduled for January 2012.

Prashanth Shivadass from Christ said that the University students were excited to organise the moot in January. “We had our flagship moot last September and now we working on the anti-trust moot in January.”

Both LKS and CCI were collaborating with NLU Jodhpur for the anti-trust moot during the previous seasons.

NLU Jodhpur moot convener Pranay Bagdi said that the University was also going to hold its own anti-trust moot this season. “We have been organising anti-trust moots right from the beginning. Even though LKS is not collaborating with us this season, we will be organising the anti-trust moot in March.”

Team MPL is considering including both anti-trust moots in this season’s MPL. Reader input requested.
