Moot court is a simulated oral argument, similar to an argument made before a court. The argument lasts for specified time, during which time the attorney presents an argument and answers questions posed by the panel of judges.
Moot Court empowers law students and gives them the confidence to speak their mind on issues relating to law. Moot court enhances the skill of research and application of law.
It is not a trial: there are no witnesses and no evidence. The arguments are evaluated on the application of the law to the facts of the case.
A moot court competition simulates a court hearing (usually an appeal against a final decision), in which participants analyse a problem, research the relevant law, prepare written submissions, and present oral argument. Moot problems are typically set in areas of law that are unsettled or that have been subject to recent developments. They usually involve two grounds of appeal, argued by each side.
The IILS Moot Society aims at assisting the students of IILS, to understand the procedure relating to Moot Court and encourage them to participate in various Moot Court Competitions organized by various law schools.
