New Delhi [India], Feb 4 (ANI): Hyderabad's NALSAR University of Law team lifted the winner's trophy at the culmination of a four-day long Philip C Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition--2019 organised by the Amity Law School.
The competition witnessed the participation of more than 100 students from 31 law universities and institutions across the nation. This year, 36 teams from across India competed and one amongst the four finalists, that is, NALSAR University of Law, Hyderabad will now travel to Washington DC to represent India.
Nearly 100 judges–law professors, practitioners, scholars, and Jessup alumni–judged the students in two days of preliminary and quarterfinal rounds, culminating in Sunday’s semifinal and final rounds. The champion round was judged by the sitting judges of the Supreme Court and the High Court and other international delegates.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr Ashok Chauhan, founder president of Amity Education Group, praised the distinguished scholars and budding lawyers.
He said, “We Indians have the best legal acumen because we have instincts and intuitions and there is no comparison of Indian legal brains."
Third Secretary (Political), Australian High Commission, Sarah Greenbaum, said: "These debaters are hard working and have done a good job. Jessup provides students with an opportunity to learn nuances of International law and horn their skills in legal education."
Addressing the students, Justice S K Kaul, Supreme Court, said: “I compliment students for choosing such a noble profession. We need well trained and skilled lawyers to do the job. This profession provides an opportunity to represent people in a systematic manner, wherein the litigating lawyer remains a surgeon of the legal field." (ANI)
