Version 2.06 Stable: This is the fifth iteration of moots and scoring criteria for MPL 2 sponsored by Allen & Overy.

Also, have a look at the live updated rolling MPL Season 2 standings table.

To know about the moots coming up this month, go to MPL 2010-11 Tournament Information

Total number of Moots – 52 | Tier 1 – 4 Moots | Tier 2 - 4 Moots | Tier 3 - 8 Moots | Tier 4 - 13 Moots | Tier 5 - 23 Moots|

Tier 1 - Global Championships

These include the world finals most prestigious moot court competitions in the world and other world contests involving rigorous competition and wide participation.

Tier 2 - World Class

These are the widely recognised international mooting events where a substantial number of Indian teams participate. These moots enjoy worldwide reputation among law students.

Tier 3 - Elite Class

These mooting events are the best of the elite national contests and some of them are the gateway to the Global Championships/World-class moots in the above tiers.

Tier 4 - National Challengers

Most of the contests in this Tier see participation from the top Indian Law Schools. A large number of them have also carved a niche for themselves in the national mooting scene.

Tier 5 - Best of the Rest

A varied tier that includes good domestic competitions that a range of Indian law schools take part, as well as prestigious international competitions that see only little Indian law school participation.

Domestic Moots

International Moots

These moots are internationally prestigious but only currently see limited participation, and are therefore counted on par with Tier 5 moots. This recognises that winning such a competition is noteworthy but that it would not be fair to disadvantage colleges that could not afford to attend these. For example, only three Indian teams participated in ELSA Asian rounds last year, ICC Mediation Paris saw only 4 Indian teams, Frankfurt Investment Arbitration Moot Court Competition only three Indian teams, Maritime International Arbitration in Sydney only two Indian teams, and Oxford IPR saw only two to three Indian teams last year.

Note: In future, if any other Moot is found to be satisfying the criteria of a given Tier, the Moot shall be included in that Tier. Also, if any of the Moots in the List warrant a change in the Tier due valid reasons, the changes shall be made.

Scoring criteria

Changelog

Version 2.05:

  • India Round of Commonwealth Moot Court Competition included in tier 5.
  • The MM Singhvi Moot has been cancelled and hence has been excluded from this season.
  • Tie-breaker rule: If two or more teams have the same points, their rank shall be decided based on their respective points in different tiers, with the team with the most points in a higher tier winning the tie-break. For instance, if team A and team B have 10 points each (where team A has earned its 10 points from a tier 1 moot and team B has earned its 10 points from a tier 3 moot), team A shall be ranked higher than team B. Furthermore, if the tied teams have earned the same points in the same tiers (in the above example, team A and team B both earned 5 points in tier 1 and 5 points from tier 3) the team which has registered more total wins across all tiers will be ranked higher. The criteria thereafter will be the number of wins followed by number of runners-up, semi-finalists, best memorandum, best speaker, best researcher and honourable mention (in that order).

Version 2.04:

  • NLIU Juris Corp Moot Court Competition was included in Tier 5.
  • The Maritime International Arbitration Moot, Sydney, which took place in early July 2010, with NLU Jodhpur winning an honourable mention for the the Sarrah Derrington Award was cosidered retrospectively since it was preferable to include the 2010 competition, rather than wait a month for the result of the 2011 competition at the end of the MPL in July 2011.
  • We had also introduced a significant change in the points awarded in Tier 3, 4 and 5 competitions. The points for runners-up and semifinalists in these tiers have been considerably reduced, to increase the value of winning a competition. Now the runner-up place is worth 50 per cent of the points of the winner, and the semi-finalists are worth 25 per cent each of the maximum. This reflects the odds of winning outright in the semi-finals and the finals, being 1 in 4, and 1 in 2 respectively and is therefore more objective. Tiers 1 and 2 have remained unchanged to reflect the difficulty of reaching even the knock-out rounds in those competitions.
  • Any moots listed that see significantly more or less participation than currently envisaged or in previous years, may be upgraded or downgraded throughout the season if a compelling and reasonable case is made.
