ABOUT THE COMPETITION
Vox Anatolis National Moot Court Competition (“The Voice of the East”) is one of the flagship moot court competitions organised by the National Law University and Judicial Academy, Assam. The proposition for the competition revolves around the theme concerning Northeastern region of the country based on the issues and the questions of law related to the region which has helped the moot carve out a niche and hence, this moot court competition provides a great opportunity to the students to research on such legal issues and provides a meaningful platform to present such legal nuances. In its previous editions, Vox Anatolis has delved into the contentious issues relating to the region such as the Citizenship Amendment Act and National Register of Citizens.
This year we are collaborating with the Assam State Biodiversity Board, in lieu of their attempts to spread awareness about Access and Benefit Sharing (ABS) Regulations 2014 and Fair and Equitable Benefit Sharing. This year’s moot proposition also revolves around the nuances of the ABS Regulations, 2014 and fair and Equitable Benefit Sharing.
The moot problem for this edition has been drafted by Irfan Hasieb, Advocate, Delhi High Court.
