Moot Court Committee, NCU Law School

The Moot Court Committee at the NCU Law School, Gurugram encompasses the spirit for mooting that NCU recognizes as its own. Apart from maintaining a strong internal mooting structure, the Committee has been entrusted with the responsibility of hosting annually, the NCU Law School National Moot Court Competition. To this extent, the Committee is proud to find itself entrusted with the organization of a very prestigious and well respected moot court competition on Environmental Laws.

The Committee also makes efforts to inculcate the fresher batch with the techniques of mooting and therefore conducts regular sessions on court manners and arranges for the Intra-Moot Competitions. Given the extraordinary amounts of preparatory work involved in the organization of the various events, the Committee is an ever-bustling centre of activity, and is without wonder, a coveted committee to be in.

About NCU National Moot Court Competition

This edition of the moot court at the NCU, Gurugram sets out the case of a country where, despite the increasing demand of electricity and depleting natural resources, it has committed to creating a cumulative carbon sink of 2.5-3 billion tons of carbon dioxide equivalent by 2030. Based on a country where 57% of the electricity generation is still dependent on coal, this year’s moot proposition revolves around the issues related to environmental approvals required for setting up a nuclear power plant.

Nuclear Power Plants, being water intrinsic units, are generally built in coastal regions. Therefore, local laws of the country set out an obligation on the project proponent of large infrastructure projects to be built in coastal regions to take prior “Coastal Regulation Zone Clearance” as well as to obtain the Environment Clearance after conducting a detailed “Environmental Impact Assessment”.

This assessment establishes the baseline status of various environmental components viz. air, noise, water, land, biological, radiological, socio economic and to evaluate & predict the potential impacts due to the proposed activities. The assessment also includes preparation of an Environmental Management Plan for the predicted impact on the environment. However, the people living in the vicinity of the proposed project size may not always agree to the environmental clearances received by the project proponent.

Therefore, it can be said that this year’s moot proposition requires a deep understanding of the Environmental Impact Assessments. The moot proposition touches upon the aspect of Right to life and clean and safe environment. This year’s moot court competition aims to look for an answer to a complicated question, “whether the basis to allow a project shall be sustainable development or complete satisfaction of inhabitants?
