DAY 3: THE ADVANCED ROUNDS OF THE 8TH NLIU INADR

The NLIU INADR witnessed two days of intense rounds, which involved fierce competition among the participants in order to progress to the advanced rounds. Teams, in addition to competitive spirit and good knowledge and good knowledge of facts, also showed excellent collaboration skills and team work. After 3 rounds of acute mediation, here is what the judges have to say:

Mr Tom Valenti

After a tiring day of 3 preliminary rounds, we got time to have a quick talk with the judges. At the BBC Stall, we ran into Mr. Tom Valenti. Enthusiastic as ever, Mr. Valenti, pointed towards the fact that every team had the zeal to take a step towards the winning trophy, and having been a judge over the past editions of the tournament, he said that the competition has been getting better and better every year. He suggests the teams to not drain out and give a strong finish, because every round has its importance.

Mr David Adams

Post our chat with Mr. Valenti, we got an opportunity to interact with David Adams. Mr. Adams regards the tournament to be a learning experience for both the judges and the participants, and progressive rounds tend to be better due to the experience that he/she acquires in the previous rounds. In addition to that, he pointed out towards the effective co-ordination between not only the client and counsels, but also the co-mediators, who, despite competing against each other, make no attempt to outshine the other by any sort of domination.
