“1st NLUO PHFI Public Health Law National Moot Court Competition” from June 25 to 27, 2021.

The Centre for Public Health Law of National Law University Odisha in association with the Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI) is conducting the "1st NLUO PHFI Public Health Law National Moot Court Competition" from June 25 to 27, 2021.  We are writing this mail requesting participation from your college.
 
ABOUT  1ST NLUO PHFI PUBLIC HEALTH LAW NATIONAL MOOT COURT COMPETITION
National Law University Odisha, Cuttack takes pride in pioneering the development and teaching of ‘Public Health Law’ as a specialised course in India. We are the perhaps the only Indian University that offers a streamlined study of ‘Public Health Law’ as aseminar course,away from the shadow of Constitutional Law, Medicine and Law and Bioethics. While the Covid-19 pandemic has put a spotlight on just the subject there is a need for broader engagement with administrators, academicians, lawyers, law students across the country to critically analyse the role of law in making health a realizable goal and ensuring distributive fairness in the allocation of critical health infrastructure. What better way to do it and cudgel the young minds than a moot. So with an aim to expand our reach to law students across the country and make them think and research about various nitty-grittys of byzantine legal rules and principles that form the bedrock of public health apparatus we are organising this Moot. The purpose of this moot is to armor budding lawyers with research skills and arguments on the tensions between civil liberties and the State’s coercive powers in the wake of vaccine policy.
