With a modest beginning, the University is all set to compete with global economic standards with a deftly crafted teaching-learning methodology. NUSRL endeavours to share the global opportunity in law as well as legal discipline.
ABOUT NHRC-NUSRL National Moot Court Competition, 2023
Human Rights are standards that recognise and protect the dignity of all human beings. Human rights govern how individual human beings live in society and with each other, as well as their relationship with the State and the obligations that the State has towards them. Human rights law obliges governments to do some things and prevents them from doing others. Individuals also have responsibilities: in using their human rights, they must respect the rights of others. No government, group or individual person has the right to do anything that violates another’s rights.
This moot court competition aims to build and create awareness about human rights. It envisages to sharpen the debating skills and improve the ability of future lawyers in making and creating-strong and well backed arguments so that they can reflect and reproduce the same in practice.
