The Law and Politics Society (LPS) at LUMS strives rigorously to inculcate a culture of mooting across law schools around the globe. This event not only provides a useful opportunity to law students to demonstrate their critical legal research and advocacy skills, but also serves as a national focal point for new and progressive initiatives in legal education. The 3rd LIMCC was held from February 13th – 16th 2020. It hosted a total of 20 teams, national and international included. The Competition has been incomparable to the previous ones, not only in terms of having more teams intensely competing amongst each other, but also in terms of the panel of remarkable judges honoring us with their presence.
