About School of Law UPES

The Moot Court Association of the School of Law UPES unlocks the doors to unparalleled legal excellence, proudly fostering, administering, and facilitating mooting activities, upholding the university’s benchmark of excellence. The core mission revolves around the meticulous planning, organization, and execution of International, National, and Internal Moot Court Competitions, creating an environment that propels the development of a sparkling mooting culture within the Law School.

About the Competition

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.
