About Department of Laws, Panjab University

The Department of Laws, Panjab University was originally established in Lahore in 1889, re-established at Shimla in 1948, and finally re-located at the University Campus at Chandigarh in 1959.

About the Competition

Liberalization of the economic policies of the countries around the globe began in the eighties, and in the nineties, the participating countries entered the phase of globalization.

The challenges brought with them a wide range of changes in terms of the competitive capabilities of the respective domestic markets. Market-oriented reforms have become crucial both for developed and developing countries to achieve their development and growth goals.

Law schools play an important role in instilling and encouraging the growth of competition law by hosting debates, panel discussions, and moot court competitions, as well as encouraging research and legal writing on the subject.

As a result, the Department of Laws at Panjab University proposes to hold a two-day National Moot Court Competition on Competition Law.
