Version 3.02 Draft: This is the second draft of the MPL 3 list of moots, mirroring the MPL 2 list. Additions proposed on the Discussion page.

Total number of Moots – 54 | Tier 1 – 4 Moots | Tier 2 - 5 Moots | Tier 3 - 8 Moots | Tier 4 - 13 Moots | Tier 5 - 24 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.

Total number of moots in this tier: 4

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.

Total number of moots in this tier: 5

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.

Total number of moots in this tier: 8

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.

Total number of moots in this tier: 13

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.

Total number of moots in this tier: 24

Domestic Moots

Total number of moots: 15

International Moots

These moots are internationally prestigious but only currently see limited participation from Indian teams, and are therefore counted on par with Tier 5 moots. This recognises that winning such a competition is noteworthy but that it would be unfair to disadvantage colleges that could not afford to attend these. Around 3-5 Indian teams participate in these moots.

Total number of moots: 9

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.
