Since its inception in 2012, the ADR Cell of the University has been organizing the National Mediation Competition. The event has already seen eight successful editions, with the 8th edition being a resounding success, for we garnered a quality participation of teams from countries such as the United Kingdom, Singapore, Brazil and Norway, along with all other top Law Schools of the country, in what was a tough competition among the cream of the crop of the student-legal fraternity.

The winners took home cash prizes worth INR 1,75,000 (USD 2,350) along with enticing gift vouchers such as receiving access cards of ADR-ODR International, SCC Online, Eastern Book Company Reader (EBC), etc.

About Lucknow

With the constraints due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we conducted our past two editions in online mode. However, given the global pandemic has subsided, and there has been a wave of normalcy, we are elated to have the opportunity to host you on our campus in Lucknow.

Lucknow is a city of kebabs and nawabs, of plan and history, of composing and culture. Apart from the delectable food and mesmerising architecture, the lofty monuments like Rumi Darwaza, Shah Baoli and the enriching history of Bara Imambara and the Jama Masjid, along with the sumptuous food of the town, your bucket list to do exciting things will be certainly fulfilled.

Additionally, the offline experience will be an unparalleled experience where you will be overwhelmed with the rush of back-to-back rounds, the real-time pressure and excitement of the competition, and a chance to fraternise with the best in the industry. We promise that this offline competition is filled with three days of learning, fun, and connections for a lifetime.
