XIII Edition - National Law School Trilegal International Arbitration Moot

 Email  Facebook  Tweet  Linked-in

Hello everyone!

We are delighted to announce the XIII 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 primer institution that strives to set higher standerds each year in the field of legal education. In the field of mooting NLSIU has performed extrodinarily 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. We also gained global recognition and praise for organizing the Asia Pacific Rounds of the Manfred Lachs Moot in the year 2016.

At NLSTIAM, we have always strived to provide the participants with a truly enriching experience. To this effect, we have invited several renowned practitioners, arbitrators, academicians and judges of the higher judiciary to judge the moot rounds. We have also provided the participants with a top quality moot proposition, based on nuanced and intricate sets of issues in arbitration, drafted by eminent names in international arbitration. Through previous editions of NLSTIAM, participants and judges have had the opportunity to explore issues such as the recovery of costs, damages for loss and reputation, unjust enrichment and jurisdiction of the tribunal, arbitrator bias, confidentiality, and also deal with other contemporary developments in the field of law. The Problem-Drafting Committee is being chaired by Lord Goldsmith who served as the Attorney General of the United Kingdom from 2001-2007.

This year, the Moot is intended to stimulate the study of international commercial law and the use of arbitration to resolve international commercial disputes. The international nature of the Moot is intended to lead participants to interpret the texts of international commercial law in the light of different legal systems and to develop an expertise in advocating a position before an arbitral tribunal. Several social and interactive sessions will be organised at the sidelines of the competition to ensure that the moot does not limit itself to being a mere competition, but, becomes and enriching and educative experience for its participants.
