WTI alumni play key role in Gujarat International Moot Court 2020

The 12th Gujarat International Moot Court (GIMC) competition, an important international trade law moot court held in India, has just concluded. The World Trade Institute is proud of the involvement of so many of its alumni in the event, which it has sponsored for more than ten years.

More than 50 teams from 11 countries and some 40 different Indian law schools competed against each other in the 12th edition of the GIMC. 

The winning team came from Symbiosis Law College, Noida, Uttar Pradesh. Their prize is to participate free of charge in the WTI Summer Academy in Bern. The runner-up team was from Southampton University in the United Kingdom. 

The WTI is very proud that MILE alumnus Rishab Raturi (MILE 15) co-authored the moot problem jointly with Shashank P. Kumar from the WTO. It was mentioned by the eminent panellists of the Final Oral Round that this moot problem was one of the best and most timely moot court topics covering the legal aspects of cross-border data flows, privacy, public order, essential security interest, and non-discrimination principles.

The WTI is also proud that several other MILE alumni participated as judges in the different rounds: Stuti Toshi (MILE 17) Harsh Gursahani (MILE 11) and Pallavi Bajaj (MILE 10)
