Moot Court Competition



The Moot Court is an innovative method for teaching legal science. The object of the Moot Court is to enhance the students’ legal skills, such as drafting legal memoranda and presenting solid legal arguments with confidence. Each moot court contains a legal problem where the students are required to analyze the problem, identify the legal issues, and conduct a thorough research. Then the students are required to draft memoranda for both parties and present their case orally.
