''Version 2.02'': This new list of Moots for [[MPL 2]] contains considerable changes in the Tier System and the Scoring Criteria. A new fifth tier has been included to balance the moots in the other tiers. Also, some exceptional International Mooting Competitions (like ELSA WTO Moot, Frankfurt Arbitration, etc) see abysmal Indian participation, which is unfair to other participants in the [[MPL 2]]. Therefore, instead of excluding them from the [[MPL 2]], we have demoted them to lower tiers to ensure fairness.

On the other hand, one does not see such huge international participation in the Stetson World Finals or the Red Cross Moot. Hence, they have been retained in the second tier.

Revision as of 11:35, 20 September 2010

Version 2.03: This is the third list of Moots and Scoring Criteria for MPL 2. In all likelihood, this is going to be the final List. We have been receiving suggestions from our readers regularly and we thank all of you for sparing time and helping us finalize the List.

This version has incorporated very few changes. We have added three Moots in the fifth tier. Also, we have promoted two Moots from the fifth tier to the fourth tier. The new Moots that have a place in this List are in bold and the Moots that have been promoted up are in italics.

We were asked to rethink the funda of keeping Vis Hong Kong in the first tier. Also, many suggested that Stetson North and Red Cross Finals be promoted to the first tier. After much deliberation, we have decided not to make any changes in those Tiers. The moots in the first Tier have international participation of at least more than 60 Teams (Vienna and Jessup unjustifiably have huge participation, Hong Kong has around 80 Teams and in Manfred Lachs, the winners of the three regional rounds compete in the Finals (each regional round sees participation from around 20 teams). On the other hand, one does not see such huge international participation in the Stetson World Finals or the Red Cross Moot. Hence, they have been retained in the second tier.

Total number of Moots – 52 | Tier 1 – 4 Moots | Tier 2- 4 Moots | Tier 3- 8 Moots | Tier 4- 15 Moots | Tier 5- 21 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 International Arbitration 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.

Now, we need your help:

  1. Look through the list and decide whether you agree with the rankings.
  2. Do you agree with the scoring criteria? Should more points be given for a tier, or less points?
  3. Think of some catchy names to call each tier and let us know!
