Delhi Metropolitan Education is organising 1st DME International Moot Court Competition 2022 in partnership with Dhir & Dhir Associates. Legal Bites is a Proud Media Partner of the Event.
DME Law School strives for bringing in a positive change in the status quo of society through innovative and practical ideas. The DME Moot Court Society, under the aegis of Faculty and Student conveners and the Executive Board, has organized a number of prestigious moots, including the DME National Moot Court Competitions (DME NMCC) from 2017 to 2021, all of these moots were one of their kind as the problem for the moot and the rules for the competition were drafted in a way which allowed the participants to use an innovative approach while mooting.
The DME MCS understands the need of the changing time and hence this year we have come up with an idea of bringing in an innovative approach to the Moot Court Competition and make it something more than just courtroom debating.
The DME MCS has been organising various national and international events related to Intellectual Property Rights, Constitutional Law, Criminal Law, Cyber and Privacy Law, and other topics to provide a way for students to imbibe the practical principles of law, and this moot court is one of those ways to develop a virtual model for law students to mix and match them with the intricacies and expediencies of law.
Vision of the DME International Moot Court Competition 2022
“There is no chance for the welfare of the world unless the condition of women is improved. It is not possible for a bird to fly on only one wing”. -Swami Vivekananda.
The moot court proposition covers areas like Sexual Harassment at Workplace, Human Rights, Constitutional Law, Criminal Law, Corporate Governance and such other global concerns. Violence against women remains devastatingly pervasive and starts alarmingly young. Prominent news headlines grabs our attention towards sexual harassment at the workplace. New data from WHO and partners manifests that across their lifetime, 1 in 3 women, around 736 million, are subjected to physical or sexual violence by an intimate partner or sexual violence from a non-partner – a number that has remained largely unchanged over the past decade. As of 2019, there are approx 19.45% working women in India out of the total female population which is estimated around 48% of the total population. The rate of crime in the workplace against women has been increasing rapidly, not just in our country and also around the globe.
In a society where violence against women is posed just to show the patriarchal value operating in society, these values of men pose the greatest challenge in curbing sexual harassment. No female worker is safe and the sense of security is lacking in them. Sexual harassment is rooted in cultural practices and is exacerbated by power relations at the workplace. Unless there is enough emphasis on sensitization at the workplace, legal changes are hardly likely to be successful. Workplaces need to frame their own comprehensive policies on how they will deal with sexual harassment. Instead of cobbling together committees at the court’s intervention, a system and a route of redress should already be in place.
As a leading institution of this country, we endeavour to provide budding lawyers with the best possible exposure in terms of practical experience, and we believe that by organising such academic events, we strive to achieve that aim. It gives us immense pleasure to extend our heartfelt invitation to your esteemed institution to participate and make this event a grand success. This event incites to provide a platform to the students and faculty of law to sharpen their minds and showcase their legal knowledge.
We expect your response and look forward to an opportunity to welcome your team to Delhi Metropolitan Education, Noida.
