Moot Court

Mooting is a form of an Oral proceeding similar to that of a court proceeding practiced mainly in institutions and universities where law as a subject is taught to see that how efficient a student is in putting an argument based on law. In this a proper court scenario is shaped where the students act like the Councillors (Advocates) presenting each side (Plaintiff and Defendant) on the basis of evidences and substantive questions of law argue with each other to prove their point in front of the judge who in the end will give his judgment in the same regard and will also declare the winner who would perform the best.
