The HSF-NLU Delhi International Negotiation Competition is an invitation-only competition organised by Herbert Smith Freehills and National Law University, Delhi annually. The INC was conceptualised by HSF and started in 2014. Within a short span of a few years it has gained widespread acclaim and draws participants from over 35 internationally renowned universities. The competition aims to provide an opportunity to law students of select top universities across the globe to practice and improve their negotiation skills. It provides a platform for students to compete in a truly diverse and international environment. The competition is carefully structured to simulate legal negotiations particularly for those students who aspire to be international lawyers.

Students participating in the competition will assume the roles of international lawyers in negotiating a series of legal problems. The problems will be based on real life examples and will comprise a common set of facts known to all participants and confidential information known only to the participants representing a particular side. Oxford's teams won the competition in 2019 and were runners-up in 2018.
