3:32 PM- The petitioners start their rebuttal round. They have 2 minutes.

3:45 PM- The petitioners have ended their rebuttals and now the respondents have sent their counsel for the rebuttal round.

3:50 PM-  The respondents have also finished their rebuttals and now it is time for the judges to evaluate the arguments and issues presented to them by both the parties.

4:00 PM- The judges provide us with kind words of enlightenment and encouragement while the results are being calculated.

The judges have come back with the results and the petitioners have done it. They are the winners of NMCC 2018! 

 

With this we put a cap on the third and final day of NMCC! We hope to see you again next year!
