Moot court is an elegant concoction of researching, drafting, and pleading. It is the art of learning the central tenets of advocacy. Clinical education, learning through experience, is an imperative for education to prepare for the cut-throat competition of the 21st century. Mooting is one such activity that is an important part of clinical legal education. AURO Litigiosus Committee was formulated to promote and propagate mooting. School of Law has organized two national moot competitions which witnessed sweeping participation. Students from all across the country, including some of the top national law schools participated. This edition aims to establish and take us to higher levels of mooting in the country.
Moot court is a unique competition where law students learn through simulation of court-room environment and they research, analyze, prepare written submissions, and present oral arguments before judges. Mooting, however, is not like public speaking or debating, rather it is an art of convincing the court in your favour. Mooting brings out in a student all the core techniques that a law student needs to build in themselves for a successful law career. Harvard Law School approved student-run moot court programs in 1910 utilizing a board of third-year students who served as advisors to first-year students. Since then, mooting has become the celebrated event that it is today.
Students of School of Law attended a Summer School Programme in Ukraine and Poland organized in association with Ukrainian Ministry of Education. Topics covered were on history and culture of the two countries pre and post-Soviet period, integration of European Union, public international law, politics and the role of mass media, and on the economy of Ukraine.
