In yet another phenomenal mooting achievement the NUJS team comprising of Aakanksha Jadhav, Abhay Bhandari, Suyash Sharma, Vaishnavi Singh and Shrijaya Singh broke into the octa finals at the global rounds of the FDI International Arbitration Moot, 2020 held virtually from 4th to 9th November 2020.
The FDI International Arbitration moot spans approximately eight months each year and is conducted in two phases with an aim of inculcating in students, academicians and practitioners a practical understanding of investor/state arbitration issues.
The South Asian regional rounds were organised virtually too. NUJS was the third highest ranked team on the basis of their cumulative memo and speaking scores at the regionals. The global rounds saw more than 75 teams that were selected through the various regional qualifiers. A total of 245 speakers participated in this year's oral pleadings. In addition to the team's successful run, Aakanksha Jadhav from the Class of 2023 was one of the Top 30 speakers of the tournament.
We congratulate the team on their brilliant performance and wish them the very best for the future.
