Team applications are invited for the 1st British High Commission-Jindal Global University (BHC-JGU) Moot, 2021.
About the Moot:
The moot concerns legal issues on which the British High Commission works in its engagement with its British and Indian citizens, especially with criminal cases where British citizens are involved as perpetrators or victims of crimes, on Indian soil.
The moot gives participants a novel opportunity to create a “Strategy Note” as their first submission in the preliminary round. In this innovative format that is a cross between client counselling and a moot court competition, the first round will be a hands-on experience where teams will put their thinking caps on and tackle legal and extra-legal strategies to work with a set of British clients. Based on the “Strategy Note,” 8 teams will make it through to the advanced rounds where the final problem will be tackled in a classic moot format. The top 16 will receive certificates of ‘honourable mention’ for their stellar performance in the first round.
The Grand Finale will take place at the BHC headquarters in Delhi, with judges from Inner Temple, U.K. and Chevening Scholars. The moot will provide an unparalleled opportunity to be mentored by the finest judges from Inner temple, U.K. in addition to a number of other exciting prizes up for grabs for the finalists, including but not limited to a range of books and potentially a tour of the Inner Temple premises.
The Rules and Regulations of the moot have been uploaded to this webpage. Other documents concerning the competition will also be uploaded here shortly.
