What is TNNLU National Med-Arb Competition?
Tamil Nadu National Law University was the first Law Institution in India to conduct a Competition on the Med-Arb model of dispute resolution. The National Med-Arb Competition (‘NMAC’) involves a two-step dispute resolution process in which parties attempt to resolve their dispute in mediation, and, if they fail to resolve some or all of their issues, the remaining issues are automatically submitted to Arbitration where the Arbitrator imposes a binding decision. Last Date of contest is 20th December 2023.
