About the Competition

Since its inception in 2007, the vision of Alternative Dispute Resolution Cell (ADRC) has been to disseminate knowledge relating to Alternative Dispute Resolution mechanisms and create a platform for like-minded and zealous individuals to come together to revolutionize the process of dispute settlement.

This goal became a reality in 2012 with the Cell organizing Asia’s oldest as well as India’s largest Mediation Tournament, the “NLIU INADR International Law School Mediation Tournament”. With each successive year, we have witnessed participation from all National Law Schools and premier private law schools of the country besides Universities in the United States, Australia and parts of Europe.

With the experience of organising 8 successful editions of our prestigious mediation tournament, this year ADRC aims to conduct the “1st NLIU International Negotiation Competition 2020” virtually. The competition aims to provide an opportunity for students to be a part of disputes akin to actual altercations witnessed by legal professionals. It further presents an opportunity to hone in the requisite communication and negotiation skills in addition to holding discussions with equally enthusiastic professionals and students in the field.
