ABOUT THE COMPETITION
“The world it not run by weapons any more, or energy, or money. It is run by ones and zero…. little bits of data …… There’s a war out there, a world war but it’s not about who has the most bullets, it is about who controls the information – what we see and hear, how we work, what we think. It’s all about information.”
As the use of computers got more widespread in the cyber world, there was an expansion in the advancement of technology as well, and the term “Cyber” became more familiar to the people. The evolution of Information Technology (IT) gave rise to the cyber space, in which the internet provides equal possibilities to all individuals to access any information, data storage, analysis, and so on using cutting-edge technology. These crimes are similar to an attack on an individual’s, corporations, or government’s secure information. In this technological world, most of the people have no knowledge regarding which types of crimes come under the cyber-crime. At this juncture of history, the knowledge of cyber laws is essential and this moot has the purpose and goal of spreading more awareness about cyberspace and cyber laws.
The NUSRL International Cyber Law Moot Court Competition aims to foster and cultivate interest in the field of cyber law and the role of information technologies in societies around the world. The NUSRL international Cyber Law Moot Court Competition challenges students to engage in comparative research of legal standards at the national and regional levels, and to develop their arguments (in written and oral forms) on cutting-edge questions in Cyber law.
