An international moot court competition in February this year will be organized in collaboration with World Trade Institute (WTI), Basel (Switzerland) and Gujarat National Law University. The moot will cover international law and international trade law as moot problems. The theme of the contest would be carbon trade, carbon credits and trade issues. At least 38 teams of law students from the United States, the European Union and various Asian countries are expected to participate.
The main purpose of organising the "unique" moot is to prepare law students for inter-country disputes that may arise because of the increasing number of regional trade agreements. The judges for the contest would most likely include sitting judges of the Supreme Court and members of the World Trade Organisation's and the winning team would receive a scholarship to attend WTI's Summer Academy on International Trade Regulation. This is a very good that will give an international exposure to the participating mooters.--
