Monthly Blog Writing Competition – 1st Edition

  June 29, 2021

IBC16 invites submissions from students for blog posts exclusively covering the NCLT and NCLAT judgments from the months of May & June 2021


For the first time, we are trying to introduce a bottom-up approach to scholarship on judicial decisions. The judgments from the higher judiciary tend to attract most of the media and scholarly attention, and for good reason. But we believe that a more rigorous examination of the NCLT and NCLAT decisions could pre-emptively highlight tricky legal areas.

The top three entries will be published on IBC16, in addition to receiving:

First Prize of Rs. 3250/-

Second Prize of Rs. 1750/-

Third Prize of Rs. 1000/-

Entries will be judged by a panel of industry experts. They will be looking for submissions that – 

  • Tackle new questions of law
  • Spot early judicial trends
  • Incorporate cross-domain analysis 

Section X, IBC16’s judgment search portal, has got your case law research covered – the only place online where you can find and download any NCLT/NCLAT judgment with just a click.
