Moot Court Competitions, which is a mandatory part of law curriculum in all law schools today, offers a practical and application-based approach to learning of law. It gives the law students, the necessary free space to interpret and analyse legal provisions in context of a given legal regime, while trying to solve a practical problem. The GDGU School of Law is dedicated to promote this aspect of legal training for ensuring a wholesome legal education, and the GDGU Moot Court Competition is a maiden endeavour of the School of Law in this direction.
The first edition of this Moot Court Competition deals with the international environmental law regime. The moot problem focuses on the critical and obvious, yet neglected, concern relating to water management disputes in the international scenario. The glaringness of the situation is further enhanced by the challenges it poses to environmental protection. The moot problem shall allow the participants to analyze the weak policy structures governing the domestic implementation of international concerns, in matters of water management. It further seeks to provide a gateway to reflect on solutions for similar disputes globally.
