The South Regional Round of ConQuest 2017 was held on 11th August 2017 in the campus of our regional partner – School of Law, Christ University. 60 teams from Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Telangana registered for the highly competitive preliminary round. We saw participation from law schools like: NLSIU, NALSAR, SLCU, TN NLS, University Law College, BMS Law College, CMR Law College, KLE Law College, St. Josephs College of Law. Non law universities like PES University, Christ University, Bishop Cottons Women’s Christian College, St. Joseph’s College and high-school teams from NPS HSR, Bishop Cotton’s Boys School, and Vidyaniketan participated as well.
The eight teams that made it through the preliminary round, to battle it out in the regional finals, were: the all women’s team from School of Law, Christ University (SCLU), the high school team from NPS HSR (won the best high school team prize), two teams from NLSIU, and teams from PES University, NALSAR, SLCU, and TNNLS .
The enthusiastic participation of the audience, the competitive spirit of the finalists and carefully curated questions made for an energized and stimulating afternoon of quizzing. After three closely contested rounds the top three teams, separated by a mere 5 points from each other, were Jeydev C.S and Abbhishek Choudhary from NLSUI (defending champions of ConQuest 2016), Anirudh R.S and Nikhil Chandra R from SLCU, and Ritvik and Preetam of PES University.
The Director of SLCU, Dr. Fr. Benny Thomas and Chief Guest Mr. Arvind Narrain, an advocate, activist and Co Founder of Alternative Law Forum, gave away the prizes. Raghav Chakravarthy, from Walnut Knowledge Solutions conducted the quiz.
The top two teams from the South Regional Round will be at the National Finals on 1st September, 2017 at the School of Law, Christ University, Bengaluru.
