A method of teaching Law and Legal skills that requires students to analyze and argue both sides of a hypothetical legal issue using procedures modeled after those employed in state.
Moot court enables the students to analyze legal issue. Its larger purpose is to teach students practical side of litigation. Law students are given a detail hypothetical situation in which one or more legal issues are raised in a realistic scenario. Often these fact patterns are based on real and appellate cases put up before the hon’ble Supreme Court and hon’ble High court.
Students are assigned the position on the issue to be argued. Thereafter they conduct legal research, finding statutes, regulations and case law that both support and detract from their positions. An important part of the Moot Court process is to teach the students to overcome Legal Authority (statutes, regulations and cases) that cuts against their position.
Moot Court are regularly organized by the College which encourages students not only to participate but also acclimatizes with the court proceedings.
