The Madras High Court has formally recognized NPAC as an institution rendering assistance in arbitration matters. The main aim of the Centre is to provide quick, efficient and cost-effective arbitration services.
TNNLU NMAC is one of the few competitions focusing on the hybrid variety of Mediation and Arbitration (Med-Arb) under the umbrella of Alternative Dispute Resolution.Inthis competition, the parties will initially try to resolve their disputes through mediation based on an agreed covenant and then through arbitration. This agreed covenant will transform into a binding arbitration agreement for the arbitration session. Hence, the participating students are expected to participate and compete against each other in both Mediation and Arbitration sessions.
Participation in the competition is limited to 24 teams based on 'First come First serve.' The competition will take place in the following rounds-
