About the Organisation:

Students for the Promotion of International Law (SPIL), Mumbai, as the name suggests, is a student body which cynosures International Law. With an increasing need for awareness in the field of International Law, we maintain that such awareness is put into an impetus through the diverse events we conduct within the versatile subject of International Law.  At SPIL, we take a novel approach for students and academia alike, to let them be a part of the discourse, to explore the magnificently huge sphere of International Law, while always keeping in mind the grey and equivocal areas of the subject and attempting to abridge the same.

About the International Law Summit:

The theme of the 14th Bombay Bar Association – Government Law College International Law Summit, 2024 is ‘International Humanitarian Law’. The Summit is scheduled to take place on the 25th & 26th May 2024. The Summit will stimulate the minds of attendees through thought-provoking interactions with experts and doyens of the legal fraternity. As we explore the seemingly endless territory of International Law, we hope to cater to pertinent issues of the day. The Summit, aside from the Keynote Address, Panel Discussion and Call for Papers, comprises the novel Judgment Deliberation Competition© which was conceived within the portals of our institution.

About the Judgment Deliberation Competition©:

The JDC© essentially expects participants to arrive at a judgment, after analysis of facts and arguments presented from both sides. The Competition has been inspired by the procedures of various judicial bodies and tribunals that span the spectrum of international law. Bringing a fresh approach to problem analysis and judgment-making, it requires participants to arrive at a judgment that is infallible in law, rational in thought, and innovative in its essence.  


Students of any university on a full-time or part-time basis in either a 3-year LLB or a 5-year integrated BA/BBA/BSC/BCOM/BLS LLB course at the time of the Competition are eligible to participate in the Competition.

Team Composition:

A Team shall be composed of two (2) members: a Judge and a Judicial Clerk. These roles are interchangeable only upon the commencement of a new round.

Please note that the students can register individually for the Competition. They do not need to register through their college.

Best Team: INR 30,000/-
