Dr. Ram Manohar Lohiya National Law University, Lucknow is pleased to announce that the III RMLNLU National Mediation Competition would be held from 17th-19th February 2016.
Background of the Competition: The term “mediation” broadly refers to any instance in which a third party helps others reach agreement. Mediators use various techniques to open, or improve, dialogue and empathy between disputants, aiming to help the parties reach an agreement. In the year 2012, our university had successfully organized the 1st RMLNLU Mediation Competition with an over whelming number of universities participating in it from all over the country. It was a three day event and the Judges for this event were eminent personalities in the legal arena. The second edition of the Mediation Competition, organized in March, 2016, was also hugely successful in garnering participation of about 36 teams from across the nation. Mock sessions and lectures by eminent people in the field were conducted to appraise the students of the pattern of the competition. Prizes worth Rs 50,000 were given to the best team, best mediator, best client and runner-up client and mediator.
Vision: The Legal Aid Committee aspires to further its commitment towards fostering ADR mechanisms by taking the Competition to an international level. The Committee promises to make the forthcoming editions bigger and better with increased participation of students across the globe.
