In one of the biggest mooting achievements to close the academic year, the University team comprising of Aishwarya Gupta, Vinayak Chawla, Guncha Dhiman, Pramiti Parwani, Tejas Popat, Rohan Jain and Sreeja Sengupta has emerged as the Runner Up at the annual International Criminal Court (ICC) Moot Court Competition held at The Hague, Netherlands this year between 27th May to 1st June.
The ICC Moot Court Competition is the world's largest moot court competition on international criminal law with more than a hundred participating teams from across 50 countries. The annual event is organised by the Grotius Centre for International Legal Studies of Leiden University with the institutional support of the ICC. The competition simulates the proceedings of the International Criminal Court. It consists of an extensive six-day educational and social program, which brings together students of diverse backgrounds and cultures to The Hague to challenge their skills as future international lawyers. The final round takes place in an actual ICC courtroom with ICC judges adjudicating.
Apart from the winning trophy, Vinayak Chawla from the 4th year (who is also the Convenor of the NUJS Moot Court Society) bagged the award for the Best Speaker. The team was up against the former winners Singapore Management University in the final round.
We congratulate all the members of the winning team for this phenomenal achievement and also the Moot Court Society for what has been an absolutely great year at mooting!
