ABOUT THE COMPETITION
The Centre for Alternative Dispute Resolution (CADR) of Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law, Punjab, in association with The Peacekeeping and Conflict Resolution Team (PACT), organized a first-of-its-kind Mediation Competition from 12 – 14th April, 2019. The winning Negotiating team of Diyanshu Sinha and Adwitya Grover (RGNUL) went on to represent India in IMSG 2019 and secured the Gold medal in the competition.
CADR organized the 2nd RGNUL-PACT Sports and Entertainment Law Mediation Competition from 6-8 March, 2020. Playing host to 102 participants and close to 40 practitioners of Mediation, the event delivered a tremendous opportunity to participants and assessors to network. The Competition is the National Qualifier Rounds for the International Mediation Competition (IMC) organized by Singapore International Mediation Institute (SIMI) and to be held in Singapore.
The Best Negotiating Team Prize was bagged by Mudit Mahajan and Kartik Gupta from Maharashtra National Law University, Mumbai. Vasundhara Mehta from Symbiosis Law School Pune secured the Best Mediator position. The trio, along with Riya Punamia and Gaurang Samel from Government Law College, Mumbai as the negotiating team and Roshni Mulchandani from NALSAR, Hyderabad as the mediator will be represented India.
The 3rd Edition of the Competition, held despite these turbulent times, is a testament to CADR’s commitment to the objectives of the Mediation Competition. Though being unable to host professionals and students from across India physically, the Competition, which will be held virtually, will aim to provide to participants exposure to the challenges and methods which professionals have adopted during the Pandemic, and imbibe skills unto them which will enable them to mediate in a world which has been brought closer together and which is unburdened with physical boundaries.
The Competition seeks to make the process of Mediation more vibrant and attractive to the fraternity of law students across India. Sports and Entertainment Law has been selected for this competition as it is an appealing and ever-growing field which will allow for a multidimensional approach given the fact that the interests of clients are often multi-fold in these situations. The competition aims to provide a platform that reflects the ever-growing expectation of clients to utilize other cost-effective alternative dispute resolution mechanisms to trial and to showcase the multifarious fields that can be effectively dealt with via mediation.
The Peacekeeping and Conflict Resolution Team (PACT) is a team of like-minded professionals who share the vision of promoting the use of consensual dispute resolution (CDR). As a collective, The PACT aims to catalyze the development of CDR in India and abroad through its innovative initiatives. Conceptualized by law and psychology graduates, The PACT grew up along the shores of Goa, is currently headquartered in New Delhi, and has begun working on projects beyond India. The mission is to cross geographical boundaries and stereotypes, and take Consensual Dispute Resolution to every corner of this globe.
