The year 2011 marks the 156th anniversary of Government Law College, Mumbai. With a heritage spanning a century and a half, the Government Law College has dominated the legal landscape of India since its inception in 1855. The generations of distinguished legal luminaries who have been nurtured by this unique institution have made a seminal contribution to the evolution of the Indian Legal System.
The last date for submission of Memorials for Universities applying through the Memorials Round has been extended to 23rd November.
DMH is India's first International Moot Court Competition and was started in 2000 as a National Moot Court Competition. However, it has been open to international entrants since the past six years. The competition is the most acclaimed moot court competition in India and has over the years given an opportunity to law students across the world to develop plenary skills in the area of advocacy.
In 2007, the competition was won by the University of Cambridge. In 2008, the finalists of the competition were Cornell Law School, USA and Washington University School of Law, St. Louis, USA with the latter emerging as the winners. The year 2009 saw a close final between the Government Law College and NALSAR University, Hyderabad, with the latter emerging as winners. In 2010, the semi-finalists were King's College, London, NALSAR University, Hyderabad, Indian Law Society's School of Law, Pune and the National Law University, Delhi, while the team from Delhi took the coveted trophy. The case study and rules for the 2011 edition of the competition will be released within the next month, and the same shall be published, so as to give the participants ample time to prepare.
