The moot dealt with constitutional law, and the issue surrounding the ban on liquor consumption. The cap on the number of teams for this year’s edition was kept at 32. The engagement and excitement shown by the teams was unmatched. The level of research had gone higher than the previous years. We hope that the support shown to NALSAR continues to grow over the coming editions of Justice Bodh Raj Sawhny Memorial Moot Court Competition.
