NLS Bangalore wins Lachs moot India round over Nalsar, dominates MPL 3

NLSIU Bangalore bettered Nalsar Hyderabad in the finals of the ISRO funding round to the Manfred Lachs Space Law moot.

Seedling School of Law and Governance, Jaipur and RMLNLU Lucknow finished semifinalists in the moot. Roly from RMLNLU Lucknow also won the best speaker award.

The NLSIU team consisted of speakers Prem Ayyadurai and Viraj Parikh along with researcher Vinodini Srinivasan. Parikh said that the moot was exhausting.

“It was good preparation for the Asia Pacific rounds which are scheduled to take place in June. The judges during the moot were really good. Most of them had done Lachs earlier or were really good in international law.”

Parikh said that the competition during the moot was good. “The other teams were quite good. They had good memos. Indian teams do have a really good chance in the Asia Pacific rounds.” He noted that after a break the team would start preparing for the Asia Pacific rounds soon.

“They got good judges for the moot. It is very hard to get good judges these days.”

Raag Yadava from the NLSIU moot court society confirmed the results and said that 16 teams participated in the moot. There was no award for the best memorandum.

Note: We are still awaiting the full results of the Vis Vienna moot. The full Jessup moot results are now available on the ILSA homepage and we will update soon. The MPL 3 Season Standings will be updated after the official results are announced by the organisers.
