The competition aimed to provide a platform for law students to showcase their advocacy skills and practical knowledge of the law.

The competition was spread over three days, during which the participants were required to argue their cases in front of a panel comprising eminent judges and advocates who served as the jury. The students had to present their arguments and counterarguments, cross-examine witnesses, and provide evidence to support their cases.

Participation was open to all law students of the country who are pursuing integrated 5-year or 3-year law courses from any recognized Law institution in India. Near 100 student-participants from 17 prestigious Law universities and colleges from across India argued their cases. Following the dictum that “Law is the reason, and free from passion”, competing students proved their ability to be true advocates in the future. Participating students won prizes of Rs two lakhs under different categories.

Chief Guest of the organization, LPU Chancellor Dr Ashok Kumar Mittal shared that moot court competition provides students a chance to experience the legal profession in a real-world setting, where they can apply the knowledge that they have gained and develop their skills as budding lawyers.
The final round of the competition was judged by Hon’ble Justice Gurmit Ram and Hon’ble Justice A N Jindal, both Retd Justice Punjab & Haryana High Court, Chandigarh.

The jury members were impressed with the quality of the arguments put forward by the students. Justice Jindal shared with students that “motivation is what gets you started, and habit is what gets you going.” Justice Gurmeet Ram forwarded that “there should be certainty of thought about success, and it isn’t an accident- it’s all about hard work.”
