MOOT COURT COMPETITION


The aim of legal education are varied and has been different at different times and different places. As rightly emphasized by the eminent jurist, Dr A.T .Markose, the primary objective of legal education is to turn law students in to good lawyers who play an active role in the socio-political and economic advancement f the country. In addition to the traditional knowledge of law, an intending lawyer should also be trained in the processing and interpretation of data and verification of hypothesis.

The true aim of legal education should be to bridge the gap between academic and practical facets of lawyering. Now the question rises how well are the law-schools equipped to accomplish this task .Where does someone really learn the skills that lead to professional success? The answer lies with the law schools themselves wherein the syllabi are articulated in such a way that the students are exposed to the environment that awaits them in the court. 


lt is the duty of the colleges to furnish their graduates with potent tools of lawyering. with this imperative in mind the law-schools and academician stress on clinical and legal education whereby the student is provided a first hand experience of the profession .Pre- trial procedures , attending trial , interviewing , counseling , moots, legal aid, Para-legal services are part of clinical legal education. 


Moots courts are one of the prominent means of simulated clinical legal education whereby a student takes the role of an advocate in a simulated court room. The participation in moot courts develops among the students the ability to identify the legal issues, accumulate legal materials, prepare arguments, and argue for a side with the etiquette of the real court. 


Though mooting happens in an artificial court and sometimes criticized as being exceedingly idealistic, regular participation in moots ensure that students achieve a certain degree of professional expertise and expose the students to the rigors of courtroom practice in a manner that the class room can never achieve.it develops confidence among the law students which is one of the most important factors of success in legal profession. It enables the student to learn the art of persuasion, develops their command over their language, presence of mind and brings in the sense of wit and humor (but not always). Another feature which is added to the lawyering technique apart from preparing for the moot is the honing of the presentation style. 


Though moot courts have long been recognized as part of the curriculum at the under graduate level, for the past couple of decades or so, moot court has out-growed the curriculum itself. The past decade has developed a culture of organizing competitive moots whereby a student exposed to peers from far and across. Such has been the importance of the moot court competitions that the first ever All lndia Moot Conveners Conference (AIMCC) 2012 was hosted at the National Law Institute University 

And Guidelines for Uniform Moot Practices (GUMP) have been drafted.
