Moot Court

Silence please, the court is on…

Law College DehraDun integrates class room learning with practical learning.

We believe that real life situations of legal arena can be known only when the students equip themselves fully with the practical knowledge of law.

Legal education through class room learning and moot court participation stimulates the learning zeal of students. The Moot Court sessions encourage the development of skills in brief writing and oral advocacy.

The Moot Court is practiced in different stages like analysis of the facts of a case to arrive at legal points, to understand decided cases in light of a case presented in the Moot court, preparation of the plaint, written statement, drafting written and oral arguments and conduct of the participants with opponent counselors and the bench.

We lay a great emphasis on students’ participation in the Moot Court.

Some highlights from an actual session in progress at our Moot Court
