About National IPR Moot Court Competition, 2015

IP Markets announces its first Moot Court Competition in association with University College of Law, Osmania University, Hyderabad. M/s IP Markets is a techno legal IPR law firm of international repute having its base in the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad in India. We firmly believe in encouraging and disseminating awareness among all verticals of legal fraternity especially the young legal minds across the country, thus providing a hands-on experience for budding lawyers. This Competition gives a great insight into practice of IP which is yet to pick up throughout the country. The first tread towards the manifestation of the belief is to disseminate IP awareness amongst the young legal fraternity and serves as a spring board for better IP practise.

This Moot Court Competition is the first of its kind in the field of IPR and reflects the current legal matrix in IP practice. It explores the legal intricacies in the Patent law, more specifically its enforcement. The competition envisages a complex yet challenging hypothetical problem which would be argued by the participating teams. The competition would be judged by the eminent legal jurists on the basis of the team’s ability to understand, analyse, interpret and succinctly present their case.

The moot problem is innovative, and provides enough scope to traverse the new dimensions of the patent law. It does not restrict its ambit to High Court but also touches on quasi-judicial authorities such as IPAB and Controller of Patents.
