The Programme in Comparative Media Law and Policy, at the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies, recently organized the first media law moot court competition in India as its first step in expanding the Price Moot Competition. The competition was held at the National Law University, Delhi in collaboration with the National University of Juridical Sciences, Kolkata. Twenty-two of India's top law schools participated with the National University of Juridical Sciences (NUJS), Kolkata emerging as the winners and the National Law School of India University (NLSIU), Bangalore were the runners-up.
National Law University, Jodhpur and the Hidayatullah National Law University, Raipur along with NUJS and NLSIU were the top four teams that qualified to participate in the Monroe E.
