About Amicus Curiae, The Law Club
One such initiative is the Amicus Curiae, a law club associated with the School of Law. Amicus Curiae catalyzes visions into reality by actively promoting emerging fields of law, particularly Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). We’ve taken initiatives to promote the process of Alternative Dispute Resolution through our Law Club. Despite the turbulent time of COVID-19, we organized an Arbitration Bootcamp followed by our 1st Mediation Competition and both events went well with flying colors.
About the Competition-
In line with its mission to promote ADR, Amicus Curiae, in collaboration with IAMC (International Arbitration and Mediation Centre) in Hyderabad and Amicus Legal in Jaipur, is organizing the “2nd JECRC National Mediation & Negotiation Competition, 2023” on May 27th and 28th, 2023.
This competition aims to increase the culture of ADR among aspiring law students and provide them with a prodigious experience that amplifies their interests in this niche practice of law. By presenting near-real-world challenges, participants can brainstorm and propose probable solutions, honing their lawyering and communication skills. The competition breaks the monotony of theory-based learning and exposes participants to the multifaceted interests of clients that extend beyond commercial matters.
Conference on Changing Aspects of Mediation in India-
In addition to the competition, JECRC University and IAMC are jointly organizing a conference on the “Changing Aspects of Mediation in India” on May 27th, 2023. This conference serves as a platform for legal professionals, scholars, and students to discuss and explore the evolving landscape of mediation in India.
Judges for the event & Panellists for the Conference-
To ensure fair judgment and a valuable learning experience, the competition will be adjudicated by distinguished personalities from diverse legal backgrounds. These include renowned legal professionals such as Mr. Varun Prabhakar, General Counsel of Devyani International Ltd., and Richa Bakshi, General Counsel of Amazon India. The esteemed panel also includes Mr. Vikram Poosrela, Senior Advocate at Telangana High Court in Hyderabad, Mr. Tariq Khan, Registrar of IAMC in Hyderabad, and Mr. Susshil Daga, Partner at Amicus Legal in Jaipur.
