Dr. Paras Diwan

UPES, School of Law, Dehradun is organizing the 14th Dr. Paras Diwan Memorial International Energy Law Moot Court Competition, 2024 in collaboration with JSA Advocates and Solicitors. The event is scheduled from March 15th – 16th in virtual mode and April 6th — 7th in offline mode, as a part of UPES School of Law’s national level law fest — Vidhi Utsav.

UPES aims to foster a culture where creativity, invention, subject-matter expertise, and critical thinking are encouraged to promote well-rounded personal and professional development. The competition provides an excellent opportunity for passionate law students to involve themselves in intellectual discourse on emerging trends in Energy Law, providing a platform for budding professionals to develop cutting-edge skills in research, writing, and advocacy.


Initiated in 2011, the competition is a living tribute to the legacy of Dr. Paras Diwan, an eminent Indian jurist, and a stalwart in the field of law. What began as a national event expanded its scope in 2015, going international and proudly carrying the banner of Energy Laws across the globe. The Competition has not only grown by leaps and bounds but has also become one of the most coveted moots in the country, attracting participation from top law schools in India and abroad.

With this year’s proposition revolving around the interface of Energy Laws with Investment Laws, the upcoming 14th edition promises to be a confluence of legal brilliance, global perspectives, and technological innovation. Tune in, as we embark on a new mission to push the boundaries of legal discourse, uphold the spirit of competition, and celebrate the legacy of Dr. Paras Diwan.
