Breaking: NLU Jodhpur wins US Stetson moot, confirms NLU-J convenor

MPL 3: Cleverer, shinier, more polished
MPL 3: Cleverer, shinier, more polished

NLU Jodhpur has won the Stetson International Environmental Moot Court Competition in Florida for a massive 30 point bump in the Mooting Premier League rankings.

NLU Jodhpur moot court committee convenor Pranay Bagdi confirmed that the college had won at Stetsons late yesterday (31 March).

He added that the winning team would return to India in one week.

The Stetson moot website has not yet been updated. It is the world's most prestigious moot on environmental law, which was won by Law Society of Ireland in 2011, and by University of Maryland School of Law in 2010.

NUJS Kolkata was the only other Indian team to have won the moot in 2005. [Correction: NLSIU Bangalore also won the Stetson world rounds in 2001]

The BCI also announced late yesterday that it would start a National Mooting Academy with two NLSIU Bangalore grads, which would become an obligatory part of the syllabus. [This sentence is part of an April Fools’ Day joke story, which was not true. The rest of the article stands, however.]

Full story to follow.


Team MPL is also working on the results of the Vis Hong Kong, Frankfurt Arbitration and the Raisoni moots, which will be published shortly.
