Tamil Nadu National Law University takes immense pleasure in announcing the 1st edition of TNNLU — NHRC National Moot Court Competition which will be held from 3rd — 5th of March 2023.

About the 1st TNNLU – NHRC National Online Moot Court Competition, 2021

Human Rights law is a rapidly developing field of law in the Indian legal sphere. The applicability of Human Rights law is wide and is spread across various disciplines of displacement of migrants, refugees, treatment of prisoners etc. and is constantly evolving. In this connection, the TNNLU — NHRC Moot aims to further the vision of the NHRC by promoting, sustaining, and enabling young scholars and providing a platform for engagement and discourse.

The MCC of TNNLU has been regularly conducting various inter and intra moot court competitions since 2014. The first edition of the National Moot Court Competition was organised from 24th to 26th March, 2017. In 2018, MCC collaborated with the Indian Fair-Trade Regulator, Competition Commission of India (CCI) for the first time to organise the 1st edition of the TNNLU — CCI National Moot Court Competition which saw large participation from law students all over India.
This year we are happy to collaborate with NHRC to organise our 1st edition from March 3rd — 5th, 2023. The moot problem is based on ‘issues faced by migrants' during the organization of a Sports event by a Public Private Partnership.
