NLIU ADRC is organising the 2nd edition of its Annual Negotiation Tournament, the 2nd NLIU-Khaitan International Negotiation Competition, 2021 from 18th to 21st November 2021

About the Alternative Dispute Resolution Cell, National Law Institute University, Bhopal

The NLIU ADRC has, since its inception, established itself as a frontrunner in the field of arbitration, mediation, and negotiation. Owing to a strong belief in the principle of ‘learning beyond the four walls of a classroom’, they work to encourage and promote student participation in arbitration, negotiations, and mediation agreements in order to develop important skills required in the real world.

About the Competition

This competition, in collaboration with Khaitan & Co., will see the participation of law students from across the globe. The nature of the Tournament, like that of the previous edition, shall be that of a Commercial Negotiation, involving 2 participants from each participating team, viz. the Client and the Counsel. Owing to the technical difficulties over Virtual Rounds, we wish to restrict the number of teams to 24, which would be shortlisted on the basis of previous experiences and academic inclinations towards ADR.


The participation is limited to students pursuing their Bachelor’s degree in law (LLB, BCL, JD or equivalent).
