The Moot Court competition provides a valuable opportunity to students to hone their legal and vocal advocacy skills. The term “moot” traces its origins to Anglo-Saxon times, when a moot (gemōt) was a gathering of prominent men in a locality to discuss matters of local importance. Moot Court exercises are a part and parcel of legal studies which improve the legal and vocal advocacy skills of the law students. Participating in Moot Court competitions, a student can enrich his/her practical knowledge, qualify Court Room discipline and moreover, it’s a compulsory course for law students. To enhance their legal skills SOLW has organized a Moot Court Competition at K.R. Mangalam University. All the participants showed their utmost talent in the competition and participated actively.
