Maharashtra National Law University, Aurangabad is one of the premier National Law Universities in India. The University is dedicated to the development and advancement of legal education, and imparting specialized and systematic instructions, training, and research in the field of law. MNLU, Aurangabad despite being in its nascent stage has and continues to grow in spheres ranging from infrastructure, academics, and administration to the deployment of best research practices in the field. The University aims to advance and disseminate learning, knowledge of law, legal processes, and their role in national development. Its ultimate goal is to serve society by inculcating in its students skills pertaining to advocacy, legal services, legislation, and law reforms but above all —a sense of responsibility.


Established on October 12, 1993, the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) is a vital institution in the landscape of human rights protection and promotion in India. The NHRC serves as a sentinel of human rights, entrusted with the responsibility of ensuring justice for victims of rights violations and promoting a culture of respect for human dignity. Its primary functions include receiving and investigating complaints of human rights violations, promoting human rights awareness, and recommending measures to prevent their recurrence. The NHRC’s importance can be observed from its role as a catalyst for legal and policy changes. Many of its recommendations have led to amendments in existing laws and the formulation of new policies to better protect human rights. Furthermore, the NHRC continues to play a pivotal role in raising awareness around human rights issues through various initiatives which include conducting seminars, workshops, and moot court competitions.


The NHRC-MNLUA National Moot Court Competition is to be an annual event that will serve as a platform for law students to showcase their legal acumen and advocacy skills in the field of human rights. Participants from various law schools and universities across the country will converge to engage in simulated court proceedings. The Competition will typically revolve around hypothetical human rights cases —involving issues such as discrimination, torture, and freedom of expression —challenging students to argue, analyze, and defend their positions before a panel of esteemed judges. The NHRC-MNLUA National Moot Court Competition not only aims to test the participants’ knowledge of human rights law but also to foster critical thinking, legal research, and advocacy skills. It encourages students to delve into the complexities of real-world human rights issues and develop persuasive arguments. This Competition not only offers a unique learning experience but also provides an opportunity for networking and interaction with legal professionals and human rights activists.
