Talk:Mooting Premier League 2011-12 moot court competitions
Suggestions for MPL 3 additions
Degrading of Bar Council of India Moot, before last year, BCI was having most challenging format of mooting in India, it was put in world class, but last year judging quality, problem quality was really pathetic, so it can not be treated equal to DM Harish moot which has improved a lot in terms of reputation and participation in last three years. Participation of foreign teams in DM Harish is really good and challenging. I request you to upgrade it to World Class (Tier 4)because it is the only Indian moot where judging quality and participation matches world class level and its definetely better than the national rounds of stetson and jessup which are in same tier.
Suggestions for MPL 3, most probably starting later this month with the Raj Anand Moot Court Competition in intellectual property (IP) organised by Anand & Anand after a two-year hiatus. It will take place on 27 August 2011 and will most probably be the first moot of MPL 3 and is proposed to enter the MPL at Tier 4.
IICLAM Moot, which was in Tier 4 last year but was excluded due to unfortunate timings, will be back in Tier 4 and take place on 2 September,
Team MPL is proposing to promote the Oxford Media Moot to Tier 2 and the Oxford India Moot to the Third Tier. Please see the websites of the Oxford Media Moot (World Rounds) and the Oxford Media India Moot for more details.
Oxford Media Moot World Rounds:
27 teams from across the world participated in the moot and the website gives details about the judges who are from across the world. After last year’s successful run the Moot deserves to be upgraded for its transparency and the quality of judging and can find good place amongst Tier 2 World Class moots along other moots such as the ICC Trial Moot, Manfred Lachs Asian rounds and the Stetson world rounds.
Oxford Media Moot India Rounds:
22 law schools participated in this competition. That is similar to any of the other Tier 3 moots like DM Harish, Jessup and Stetson Qualifiers. Again, when it comes to judging and transparency, the Oxford India moot will probably be rated higher than many other Tier 3 moots. Team MPL sees no reason why this moot should not be upgraded from Tier 4 to Tier 3.
Exclude Commonwealth Moot World Rounds and Commonwealth Moot India rounds from Tier 4 and 5 respectively as the moot is not happening this year. The Commonwealth Moot is organised only once in two years.
Question marks over the GH Raisoni Moot, which was a Tier 5 moot. Does it need to be included in Tier 5? Team MPL has received feedback that it is not very popular and there is little transparency on how it is conducted and winners are announced. Team MPL is therefore minded to exclude it from the MPL.
Team MPL is minded for the SP Sathe Moot to be excluded from the MPL this season, despite its reasonable popularity as a Tier 5 Moot. Last year there was no website and little transparency on the dates of the moot and the eventual results. The ILS Pune organisers were also actively opposed to the idea of reporting the moot’s results as part of the MPL that year or in future.
Suggestions welcome below! --Kianganz 11:31, 23 August 2011 (IST)
Another moot we forgot in the first iteration of suggestions: The School of Law Christ University Moot Court Competition 2011 Bangalore has been proposed to be included as a Tier 5 moot. It is held from the 8 to the 11 September 2011 and winners receive Rs 20,000 as prize money. --Kianganz 17:52, 23 August 2011 (IST)
