The Bharat Raj Upreti Memorial Foundation (the “BRU Foundation”) was founded in the loving memory of late Hon’ble Justice Mr. Bharat Raj Upreti founding member of Pioneer Law Associates; former Senior Advocate and former Justice of the Hon’ble Supreme Court of Nepal. The BRU Foundation aims to further the vision of the late Hon’ble Justice Mr. Bharat Raj Upreti by playing an instrumental role in the fields of – (1) legal profession, (2) access to quality legal education, and (3) independence of Nepalese judiciary through research, publication, capacity building, policy dialogue and reform intervention.
In furtherance of this vision, the BRU Foundation in partnership with Pioneer Law Associates has been organizing the BRU National Moot Court Competition in commercial arbitration. We are delighted to announce that we are now organizing the Fourth Bharat Raj Upreti (BRU) Moot Court Competition (Arbitration) and Conference, 2023, from the 7th to 8th of July 2023.
The Moot will see participation from 10 Nepalese Law Schools. The competitors will be judged by panels of accomplished arbitration professionals. The conference is set to bring leading professionals and law students together for an invigorating discussion with inputs from senior members of the judiciary.
