3 PU students to represent India at international moot court contest

University Institute Of Legal Studies (UILS), Panjab University, students Navratan Singh (fifth year), Ravipal Singh Bains (fourth year) and Navreet Kaur (second year) made history when they became first runners-up at the International Environment Moot Court Competition held at Mumbai by SNDT Women's University Law School in association with Surana and Surana International Attorneys from November 26-28. The selected teams from India will now compete against other teams from the rest of the world in the finals to be held at Stetson University in Maryland, Washington DC, in March, 2011.

The subject matter at one of the most prestigious moot court competitions in the world was public international law with focus on international environment law regarding an oil spill and the liability between two countries in the International Court of Justice. The team of law students from UILS worked on the proposition for more than 400 hours as a team for over a span of four months.

This will be the first time in Panjab University's history that their moot team will be representing India in the international finals. The students expressed their gratitude towards their teacher, Dr Jasmeet Gulati, for all her guidance. The students are hopeful that they will be able to uphold this honour. They hope to approach the university authorities and seek a positive response for financial aid as well as grant of leave to enable them to prepare for the finals.
