The School of Law, Bennett University, is going to conduct the first Bennett University National Moot Court Competition 2019 (BNMCC). The BNMCC 2019 competition will be held from March 29 to 31, 2019.
The moot proposition is based on the interdisciplinary theme of law and technology – more specifically, conflicting issues of privacy and data protection which arise when governments decide to ensure better ground-level governance using drones and Artificial Intelligence.
The competition seeks to promote the idea that law is inherently an interdisciplinary field of study, forced to respond to challenges brought about by changing societal trends and technology.
With 25 teams participating from across the country, the first BNMCC has received an enthusiastic response. These teams include National Law Schools and other private and public Law Universities. It promises to be healthy competition with teams vying for several awards, including an award of Rs 40,000 to the winner of the competition.
The keynote address at the inaugural ceremony will be delivered by Hon’ble Mr. Justice Dipak Misra, former Chief Justice of India. Justice Misra is known for his landmark rulings on privacy-related issues- the Sabarimala judgment, the Aadhar judgment and declaring the provisions of the Indian Penal Code which penalized adultery and homosexuality, unconstitutional.
The School of Law, Bennett University, has teamed up with Supreme Court Cases Online /Eastern Book Company as the sole knowledge partner for the event.
