Celebrating fifteen years of the NUJS HSF Moot

2023 marks the fifteenth anniversary of the NUJS HSF Moot which has gained a reputation as one of the foremost corporate law moots in the country. We are proud of its success in providing a platform for law students to learn about the rich and complex field of Indian corporate law and sharpen their advocacy skills.

In 2018, we celebrated the tenth anniversary of the Moot. To mark the occasion HSF published a book (The NUJS-HSF National Corporate Law Moot Court Competition: The Collected Problems), compiling the ten problems of the Moot from 2008-2018. Not only does the book aim to showcase the problems that generations of Indian law students have dissected but it also highlights contemporary issues from the corporate world which law students, practitioners and businesses may find of interest.
