About the Moot Court Competition
The NMCC 2022 is the first ever attempt made by the Moot Court Committee of the IFIM Law
School to provide its young and dynamic law students a visibility for themselves as well as for
the law school and to carve a niche in the realm of business and commercial laws. The theme of the competition is Cryptocurrency and Smart Contract
IFIM Law School, Bengaluru, through the proposition of its National Moot Court Competition, has attempted to spread awareness and knowledge about cryptocurrencies; especially at this time when there is a big question mark hanging over the regulation of cryptocurrencies.
With the highest number of cryptocurrency users in the world, India has also been focusing on the same and has been actively thinking about ways to answer the question of effective regulation of cryptocurrencies by starting with proposing a bill regarding the same.
The moot proposition has been made in the thought of bringing the most basic to the more complex issues when dealing with smart contracts and the blockchain system. One of the major contentions of the problem relates to the validity of the contract mentioned in the problem, due to its existence in the form of a smart contract, its admissibility in the court of law as a piece of valid evidence and the validity of cryptocurrencies as a lawful consideration.
The other contentions of the problem relate to jurisdiction, drafting of adhesion contracts, unfair trade practices, interpretation of clauses by smart contract mechanism, and the liability to pay damages.
The competition is open only for bona-fide students of recognized Institutions/Universities/Organizations who are currently pursuing their bachelor’s degree in Law i.e. 3-Year LL.B. or 5- Year LL.B. Integrated Program.
