Symbiosis Law School, Pune established in June 1977, was earlier affiliated to the University of Pune and later became a constituent of Symbiosis International University in 2002, with an enhanced degree of autonomy in teaching, learning and research.
Symbiosis Law School "epitomizes" excellence in legal education. Nestled in the heart of Pune,( "a city" popularly described as the Oxford of the East "and the capital of the Peshwas empire), it embodies the essence of 'Symbiosis' 'which means living together for mutual benefit'. In a journey of 38 years, Symbiosis Law School, Pune has achieved various milestones in teaching, learning and research. It also has collaborations with various bodies and renowned national and international educational institutions.
In continuation of its legal excellence, SLS Pune is organizing the 4th edition of Symbiosis International Criminal Trial Advocacy competition, 2019 [SICTA].
The Competition is unique in itself by virtue of the fact that it is the first competition in India based on the rules of the Rome Statute and is a simulation of the process followed in the International Court of Justice. Owing to its unique nature, the competition has seen successful growth throughout its tenure of 3 years since its inception.
It has continuously received participation from top national law schools not just in India but from across the globe, including teams from China, U.K., Poland, Malaysia, Johannesburg, and Kuwait. The Competition is a major source of educational tourism for students and is a great platform for sharing of ideas and best practices among participants from all over the world.
