The Legal Aid Committee, Dr. Ram Manohar Lohiya National Law University Lucknow is ecstatic to announce the VII Edition of the 2TG-RMLNLU International Mediation Competition 2021, that is scheduled to be held virtually over two weekends of 13-14th March and 19th-21st March 2021.

About the Competition

Since its inception in 2012, the ADR wing of the Legal Aid Committee of RMLNLU has always aspired to further its commitment of promoting ADR mechanisms by making the young minds more involved in dispute resolution processes to peacefully resolve discord and promote conciliation and peace making. Using the Coronavirus crisis as an opportunity, the VII Edition of the 2TG- RMLNLU Mediation Competition will be going digital for the first time. It raises the bar even higher by going International, thus providing the perfect opportunity for participants to dive headfirst into meaningful colloquy, test their mental dexterity, resolve confounding problems, brainstorm strategic solution, but most significantly, beat the Pandemic blues.
