Moot Court Association

What is Moot Court?

  • It is a mock court at which law students argue imaginary cases for practice. Proceedings in the Moot Court follow a set pattern of conduct which is similar to the actual courts. From language to attire, students are required to follow set norms and argue the case with zeal and enthusiasm.
  • Mooting is not the same as public speaking or debating, although it shares some common elements with these activities. It is a specialised application of the art of persuasive advocacy. It has been part of the process of training lawyers for centuries and plays an important role in legal education.

Why Moot Court?

  • Mooting as an activity aims to inculcate and improve the research, presentation and line of reasoning into students so as to equip the budding pleaders with all the court room etiquettes, research experience and advocacy skills.
  • To appraise the students about presenting the case and preparing written submission and arguing a given case from either side before the court is the main purpose of Moot Court Competition.
  • The reasoning of the students is screened in the process and they regularly get informed about the areas which require improvement.
