 Email  Facebook  Tweet  Linked-in

UPDATE: Dear All, Thank you for your continued support. At the end of this post, you can find the Revised Schedule, the Problem, the Rules and the Clarifications to the problem of the XII NLS Trilegal International Arbitration Moot.  

Hello everyone!

We are pleased to announce the XII Edition of the NLS-Trilegal International Arbitration Moot [NLSTIAM]. NLSIU has maintained a long-standing reputation as the leading institution in the field of legal education in India. Established in 1987, NLSIU is a premier institute for legal education in India. In the field of mooting, NLSIU has performed exceptionally well at several international moots. NLSIU remains the only Indian team to win the Philip C. Jessup Moot, in 1999 and in 2012. We were also the runners-up at the 2018 Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition. NLSIU has also won the Manfred Lachs Moot Court Competition thrice, most recently in 2017. We have also been the finalist at the Vis Vienna Moot. In this year's edition of Vis Vienna, we were semi-finalists. We also gained global recognition and praise for organizing the Asia Pacific Rounds of the Manfred Lachs Moot in the year 2016.

In the same vein, since its inception in 2008, NLSTIAM has endeavoured to raise the bar for moot court competitions in India. Our Competition has been growing in prestige and quality with each passing year, as can be evinced from the highly renowned problem drafting panel and judges that we have had in the past few years. These include eminent practitioners, arbitrators, and judges of the higher judiciary, including Prof. Martin Hunter, author of the bible on international arbitration, Redfern & Hunter; Sophie Nappert, an independent arbitrator who has been ranked in Global Arbitration Review’s Top 30 Female Arbitrators World Wide; Gary Bell, who is currently on the panel of international arbitrators at Korean Commercial Arbitration Board and Singapore International Arbitration Centre; Nish Shetty, the Asia Head of Dispute Resolution Team at Clifford Chance; Leng Sun Chan, Deputy Chairman of Singapore International Arbitration Centre and the former Global Arbitration Head of Baker McKenzie; and Justice B.N. Srikrishna, retired judge of the Supreme Court of India, amongst others. The Competition further boasts of a highly competitive pool of participants, including regular international participation from teams across the world, including those from the United Kingdom, Australia, the United States of America, Poland, Singapore, China, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

The XII Edition of the NLSTIAM endeavours to uphold these standards of excellence. With a challenging problem based on commercial arbitration and smart contracts, NLSTIAM endeavours to be an opportunity for students across jurisdictions to interact and exchange ideas and opinions. The Problem-Drafting Committee is being chaired by Gary Born, chair of the International Arbitration Practice Group at WilmerHale and a world-renowned author. Our end goal is to provide all participants with a wholesome, fulfilling, educative and social experience.

The problem will tentatively release on 27 December 2018 and the registration procedure can be started by filling this form. You can find the tentative schedule at the end of this post. Additionally, you can access the brochure here. We also clarify that the Memorial Qualifiers are only for the Indian teams. We sincerely hope that your esteemed institution will accept our invitation to this moot, and we would be happy to assist the participating teams in arranging for visas, accommodation and other formalities. A pre-invite brochure giving you a glimpse into this edition of the moot has been attached. 

In addition, if you have a few days to spare before TIAM and want to explore our beautiful city of Bangalore, we are pleased to announce that NLSTIAM is collaborating with the National Law School Negotiation Mediation and Client Counselling Competition (NLSNC), to provide an opportunity to explore India that you will not forget! For the universities which choose to participate in both the NLS NMC from May 9th–12th, 2019, and the NLSTIAM from May 17th–19th, 2019, we shall subsidise your travel, and provide you with a tour of the garden city of India, Bangalore, and the surrounding areas, in the 4 days between the Competitions. Teams will be able to retain the same accommodation throughout their 10-day sojourn here. For those international teams participating in the NLSTIAM, the Organizing Committee shall endeavour to subsidize your stay, in the case of any pressing financial constraints. Teams which participate in both the NLS NMC and NLSTIAM shall receive a further subsidy for their intermediate stay.
