Moot Courts

Mooting as an activity aims to inculcate and improve the research, presentation and argument talent into students so as to equip the budding pleaders with all the court room etiquettes, research experience and advocacy skills. At Symbiosis Law School, NOIDA, it is a key co-curricular activity wherein the presentation skills and talents in argument of students are screened and further notified about their level in the competition on regular basis. This initiative is well supported and effectively carried out by dedicated Moot Court Society. Success of effective learning through moot court activity is evident from the following performances of mooters selected and thereafter participated in various national/international moot court competitions:
