6th VIPS International Law Moot Court Competition

Vivekananda School of Law and Legal Studies, proudly announces its paramount annual event, 6th VIPS International Law Moot Court Competition, from 27th-29th September 2019.

The unique feature of the VIPS IMC is that moot problem is based on Public International Law. In addition, in each moot problem we have highlighted the international legal issues of India, such as, the moot problem drafted on Law of the Sea in 1st VIPS IMC (2013), conflict between status of refugees and migrants in 2nd VIPS IMC (2014), Teesta Water Treaty in 3rd VIPS IMC (2016), nuclear war and water war in 4th VIPS IMC (2017) and further on Law of Sea and Environment in 5th VIPS IMC (2018). I am glad to put forward that all earlier moot problems were highly appreciated by the experts and invited guests. The problem of 6th VIPS IMC 2019 is based on space law and international consular relations and touching other important aspects of Public International Law.

The last date for registration is 14th August,2019.
