Nalsar, Jindal, Symbi beat by USA for first in ‘rounds point’ NLS Arb moot

American University Washington bested Nalsar Hyderbad in the finals of the NLSIU International Arbitration Moot Court, while Symbiosis, Pune and Jindal Global Law School finished semifinalists in this Tier 4 MPL moot.

Prateek Mishra from NLIU Bhopal won the best speaker award and Nalsar Hyderabad took home the best memorandum citation. Correction: NLU Jodhpur won the best memorandum citation. We were sent wrong information initially and we regret the error. We have updated the rankings.

Suswagata Roy from NLSIU Bangalore confirmed the results and said that 31 teams participated in the moot. American University Washington was the only foreign team to participate in the moot. Roy said that the top 4 teams after the preliminary rounds directly qualified to the quarters while the next 4 teams took part in the pre-quarters round.

Roy said that the moot does not exactly follow either the ‘two wins’ format or the ‘cumulative scoring’ format. “We have a rounds point system during the preliminary rounds. There are a total of nine round points in each round. Three of the nine points are for memorandum scores.

“Out of the remaining six, three points each are awarded by each of the two judges on the prelims bench. In each round, if the margin of victory is above seven per cent, the winning team gets all the three round points that can be awarded by a judge. If the margin of victory is below seven per cent, the winning team gets two round points and the losing side gets one round point.”

Roy stated that the rounds point system was conceptualised to eliminate the discrepancies that arise due to disparate scoring by judges.

NLSIU Bangalore did not participate in the All India Moot Conveners Conference held at NLIU Bhopal last month, where the mandate was to arrive at a near perfect mooting format in India. The 18 law schools which participated in the conference passed 32 resolutions and formulated the Guidelines for Uniform Moot Practices in India (GUMP).

Note: We are still awaiting the full results of the Vis Vienna moot of all teams. The MPL 3 Standings will be updated after we receive the final list of honourable mentions won by Indian teams during the moot.
