Moot Court basically means a replica of a real court where legal proceedings, trials take place and act as professionals and take up all the responsibilities and duties according to their role to see their ability to think creatively and answer convincingly when questioned and show their oratory, writing and persuasive skills. Mooting teaches students to ‘think like a lawyer’, i.e. to analyze problems logically, applying the facts of a problem to the law and presenting complex legal arguments simply and concisely. It assists students to develop skills in written and oral communication, legal research and advocacy, to gain self-confidence and to build character. Mooting assists students to understand courtroom processes and how to run a case. The School of Law organizes regular mooting activities specifically for certain subjects as specified in the academic calendar.
