The 16th Moot Competition 2021-22

ILS Law College, Pune is announcing “Remembering S.P. Sathe – The 16th International Moot Court Competition 2021-2022” to be conducted from 10th-12th March 2022. Every year, Professor S. P. Sathe Foundation, set up by the Indian Law Society, organizes three events at ILS Law College, Pune. The three events are: a Memorial Lecture, a Conference, and a Moot Court Competition. 

In keeping with the tradition, this year’s broad theme is “Climate Change”. The 16th National Moot Court Competition 2021-2022 aims at equipping the students with the skill of dealing with legal conflicts that arise before the courts owing to gaps and ambiguities in rules pertaining to legal education through an intersection of international and environmental law. 

The effects of climate change are becoming deeply intertwined with the socio-economic fabric of our society, and it is imperative that international law develops to accommodate this new reality. Through this moot, ILS aims to equip the students with the understanding of the nuances of international law, climate law, and humanitarian law, particularly when it comes to dealing with conflicting interests of state and non-state actors as regards the welfare of the people.
