These are a list of moot court competitions that are or could be part of the Mooting Premier League (MPL).

Each Moot is allocated points in the Mooting Premier League according to the scoring criteria

Please help by adding more moots below and completing each moot's page with contact details or known event dates or other background information about each competitions that could be helpful for other mooters.

Mooting competitions that were included in the 2009-10 MPL

Tier 1 moots

Suggested tier 1 additions for 2010-11 MPL

  • ...Stetson World Finals- Since it has India qualification rounds , so it becomes as challenging as Manfred or Jessup to reach the World Stage.
  • Willem C. Vis (East)- Since Manfred is in tier-I, Vis East seems to be gaining better recognition and participation from around the world then Manfred. Further it seems to be catching up fast with Vienna as well. So it makes sense to put both the Vis together in 1 category- Either Tier I or II as the case maybe.


Tier 2 moots

Suggested tier 2 additions for 2010-11 MPL

  • ...

Tier 3 moots

Suggested tier 3 additions for 2010-11 MPL

  • ICC Criminal Trial, Hague
  • Oxford Media Law
  • Oxford IP Moot Court Competition
  • World Human Rights, Pretoria- I am unsure as to the level of participation in this moot so I believe that it should be in Tier III instead of Tier II
  • Commonwealth Moot Court Competition (Mar 2011)
  • Frankfurt International Arbitration Moot Court Competition (March 2011)
  • Maritime International Arbitration Moot Court Competition, Sydney (July 2011)
Susan J Ferrell International Moot Court Competition,Florida (January 2011)

Tier 4 moots

Suggested tier 4 additions for 2010-11 MPL

  • ...
  • Pro Bono Enviro National Moot Court Competition (March-April, 2011)- organised by School of Excellence in Law, Chennai since 2008, Pro Bono has seen steady increase in its participation over the years. The first edition was won by RMLNLU followed by HNLU (2009) and Nalsar (2010). In the 2010 edition 36 National teams including almost all the NLUs, ILS, Symbiosis, CLC and GLC, Mumbai participated. The level of judging is quite good with stalwarts like David Ambrose, V. Imbavijayan (Arbitrator, Vis - Vienna for the past 5 years), SC Judges, CJ of the Madras HC (A.P. Shah J. presided over the bench when he was the CJ at Madras HC) and even few lawyers from the US were on the bench. The problems for the first two editions were based on International Environmental Law and could be compared to Stetson Compromis (I have participated in both the competitions). I feel this competition could be easily compared to Tankha, Surana Tech, KLA, Bodhraj Shawney, ULC Bangalore. It deserves a place here.

  • KK Luthra Criminal Law Moot, Delhi
  • ULC Bangalore Moot
  • S. Govind Swaminadhan Memorial National Moot Court Competition - Dr Ambedkar Government Law College, Chennai (GLC Chennai): I participated in this moot this April. It was the 1st edition and I can confidently say that it was one of the best national moots held last season. I am in the MCS of my college. So, I have a fair idea of many moots that happen. Having read quite a lot of problems last year, I would say this was the most interesting. It consisted of three cases (problems) between the same parties, the first was an arbitration proceedings, second and third ones (in appeal) were Court proceedings in intervention of the arbitration proceedings. Other arrangements including judging were good too. The rules were the most fair and transparent I have seen in any national moot till now. This moot should be in the same list as other top national moots. Any citation or extra evidence for quality of this moot that we can get here? Do others agree or have been to this moot? Would be great to use usernames for edits in future, if possible. User:Kianganz
