1st ASCENT Moot Court Competition, 2012

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 the Moot Court Society.

Moot Court prepares students to participate in simulated court proceedings. It includes drafting of brief/memorial and further participation in oral argument before the Judges in the court room atmosphere. It does not involve actual testimony by witnesses or the presentation of evidence, but is focused solely on the application of the law to a common set of evidentiary assumptions/situations. Students typically spend lot of time during the semester researching and writing the memorials, as well as practicing their oral arguments. Moot Court Competitions on national and international level tend to focus on Municipal Law, Intellectual Property Laws, Corporate Law, Criminal Law, Public International Law, International Human Rights Law, International Humanitarian Law and other varied branches of law.
