With immense pride, SVKM’s NMIMS Kirit P. Mehta School of Law, announces its flagship event, the 5th Moot Court Competition, 2020 to be held from 20th August to 22nd August 2021.
About the Event:
The first-ever SVKM NMIMS KPMSOL’s International Moot Court Competition was held on the theme of ‘Data Privacy’ in 2019. The second international competition was held on the theme of ‘’International Environment Law’ which was originally scheduled for March 2020. Since we were hit by the pandemic, the competition had to be postponed and was successfully conducted on a virtual platform in August 2020. The previous edition last year, saw a participation of over 200+ students from across the world with pertinent teams from international institutions being a part of the competition with the presence of over 60 esteemed legal luminaries from the Supreme Court, various high courts, and prestigious law firms across the country.
The SVKM’s NMIMS Kirit P Mehta School of Law’s 3rd International Moot Court Competition is scheduled from 20th – 22nd August 2021 on the theme of National Security v. International Investment, being presented this year in collaboration with ‘Stratage Law Partners’. The proposition for this edition has been drafted by the prestigious law firm, Economic Laws Practice.
About the Theme
International investment has become a medium to reach growth and is a vital device to be used as a business strategy. Therefore, it becomes extremely important to understand the underlying issues and build up good knowledge around this topic because it leads to the expansion of a Firm’s financial and management resources.
The regulations governing international investments are relatively new and thus, require the identification of various practical aspects which can later become an issue under the same. This is because such transactions come with the innate threat of jeopardizing the national security of a state. Hence, with the said theme, the objective is to put an effort in order to navigate across a range of complex issues. Also, to reflect over the different laws depending on the facts and scope present.
All students enrolled bona fide in an undergraduate i.e. 3 years/ 5 years and postgraduate law program conducted by any college or university shall be eligible for participation in the SVKM’s NMIMS Kirit P Mehta School of Law’s 3rd International Moot Court Competition.
