An effective technological solution necessitates a comprehensive understanding of legal, political and social landscapes. We have therefore initiated Shaastra’s maiden Moot Court Competition, to stress the signiﬁcance of gauging the legal calculus while addressing the question of advancement.
Our Intellectual Property Law Moot Court aims to judiciously combine technology and law. The moot problem is based on contemporary issues pervading SAP Mobile Platforms.
We are delighted to invite you to the first edition of IIT Madras’ Moot Court.
The title sponsor for IIT Madras’ Moot Court is Surana & Surana International Attorneys. The pioneers of Moot Courts in India, they have hosted, administered and sponsored more than a hundred Moot Court competitions. Surana & Surana have played a huge role in developing a moot culture in India. They will be guiding us in the administration of the event.
Our knowledge partner is Anand & Anand. With a client base of several large multinational and Indian companies, they have been ranked among the top tier intellectual property firms in Asia. They will help us draft the case and evaluate memorials prior to the event.
