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.

Total number of Moots - 49 | Tier 1 - 4 Moots | Tier 2 - 4 Moots | Tier 3 - 8 Moots | Tier 4 - 13 Moots | Tier 5 - 20 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 range of Indian law schools take part in the competitions enlisted in this tier.

Domestic Moots

International Moots

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!
