Moot Court Competition: School of Law, Bennett University

Theme: Constitutionality of Cryptocurrency In India

Law and Technology have often shared a unique relationship. Not only does law seeks to govern various operational aspects in the usage of technology, it has also used technology for the purposes of its implementation. Technological advancements have often posed various challenges to law which the latter is frequently struggling with.

One such area in which this struggle has manifested itself is in the domain of cryptocurrency. The emergence of cryptocurrency as a concept can be attributed to increasing development of information and technology, posing numerous challenges in the field of data protection, constitutionality of technology and privacy, with a major impact on finances and governance. This often brings us to a pertinent question as to whether law regulates technology or technology operates the implementation of law.

The School of Law, Bennett University is conducting its Fourth National Moot Court Competition from February 11 to 13, 2022 which revolves around this theme of law and technology focusing on the constitutionality of cryptocurrency. The Moot Court Competition aims to dwell upon this infamous relationship between Law and Technology and its implication on the legal system.

The moot proposition has been drafted by Adv. Prateek Mishra, Partner, EPA Law Offices, who specializes in analysing the interface between technology and law.
