About the SVKM’S NMIMS

In 1981, Shri Vile Parle Kelavani Mandal (SVKM) established the Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS) to meet the growing demand for management education. With the legacy of 38 years, NMIMS has grown to be not only one of the top-IO B-schools in India but also emerged as a multi-disciplinary, multi-campus University and fourteen constituent schools, of which Kirit P Mehta School of Law is one.

Established in the year 2013 approved by the Bar Council of India aims to provide a Law School with a global focus and international outreach dedicated to advance human dignity, social and economic welfare, and justice through knowledge of law.

About the Event

The first-ever SVKM NMIMS KPMSOL’s International Moot Court Competition was held on the theme of ‘Data Privacy’ in 2019. The second international competition was held on the theme of ‘’International Environment Law’ which was originally scheduled in March 2020 but since we were hit by the pandemic, the competition had to be postponed and was successfully conducted on a virtual platform in August 2020.

The previous edition last year, saw a participation of over 200+ students from across the world with pertinent teams from international institutions being a part of the competition with the presence of over 60 esteemed legal luminaries from the Supreme Court, various high courts, and prestigious law firms across the country.

Theme

The SVKM’s NMIMS Kirit P Mehta School of Law’s 3rd International Moot Court Competition is scheduled from 20th – 22nd August 2021 on the theme of National Security v. International Investment. The proposition for this edition has been drafted by the prestigious law firm, Economic Laws Practice.

International investment has become a medium to reach growth and is a vital device to be used as a business strategy. Therefore, it becomes extremely important to understand the underlying issues and build up good knowledge around this topic because it leads to the expansion of a Firm’s financial and management resources.

The regulations governing international investments are relatively new and thus, require identification of various practical aspects which can later become an issue under the same as such transactions come with the innate threat of jeopardising the national security of a state. Hence, with the said theme, the objective is to put an effort in order to navigate across a range of complex issues and to reflect over the different laws depending on the facts and scope present.
