The PACT is all set to host the second edition of its Construction Arbitration and Mediation Moot Competition – Advocate Maximus 2019 (AM19) from December 7-10, 2019, in New Delhi, India. On behalf of Adv. Ratan K Singh, the patron and mentor to the competition, we officially invite you to compete in the second edition of the competition.

Advocate Maximus is unique to any other existing competition setting. Here, the participants get to assemble their ‘Dream Team,’ that might consist of members from the same or different universities. The screening panel would go through your applications and the teams collective CV’s. The top 30 teams ranked by the panel would get to compete at the competition.

This year, the competition will be preceded by the International Conference on Construction Law and Arbitration, hosted by SCL-India and CIArb-India,which will featuring over 200 ADR professionals from around the globe. As a participants you will have the opportunity to attend in all the conference sessions on December 7, 2019, followed by a mega networking socials on December 7, which will also be the inaugural to the second edition of the competition.

Last year, we received 72 applications and 32 teams were selected to compete from India and Singapore. This year, we have already begun receiving pre-registration interests from teams from other parts of the world. Advocate Maximus is built around a unique concept where law students can create competing teams with members beyond their own law school and this diversity, we hope, will nurture a sense of inclusiveness and acceptance amongst the global legal community, as part of our mission at The PACT to breed ‘Resolutionary Lawyers.’
