2013 BCI inter-college moot postponed indefinitely due to jubilee party

MPL 4: The home of Indian mooting
MPL 4: The home of Indian mooting
Exclusive: The Bar Council of India (BCI) Trust, which conducts the BCI inter-university moot court competition, has decided to indefinitely delay this year’s competition.

The BCI and the BCI Trust are two separate but related bodies and, according to a source close to the Trust who declined to be identified, the bureaucratic hurdles played a part in the delay.

According to the source, the BCI intends to stage an event on 15 February related to its golden jubilee celebrations, the details of which are still being worked out.

The date set for the celebrations and the previously proposed date for the moot (21 to 23 February) were too close to each other, which was the most likely cause for the postponement.

The source also added that to his best knowledge the competition was most likely to be held in March at the same venue: Faculty of Law, Mody Institute of Science and Technology, Sikar, Rajasthan, which also organised the India rounds of this year’s Commonwealth Moot.

A notification would be issued soon, said the source.

The original notification which announced the dates of the competition is no longer available on the BCI’s website but can still be viewed here.

International law firm Herbert Smith is sponsoring the Mooting Premier League (MPL) and will contribute a prize pool of Rs 60,000 for the top three winning colleges.
