Law is a professional course, as most universities give practical legal training while teaching the legal theory. Undergraduate courses of law are basically designed to give students the knowledge of the subject. The course includes seminars, tutorial work, moot courts and practical training programmes.
To become a good advocate you need to equip yourself with the good presentation skills. To improve your skills and to become a good advocate, practice is required in presenting your case and arguing which is a big challenge for a developing student at the college level. These skills can be improved by taking part in the Moot Courts at the college level so that your presentation skills and talents in argument shall be screened and you will be in due to recognition at your level in the competition around you. You will then seek an improvement of your position in the competitive world. The student of law cannot just stick only to the theoretical teaching and hence law institutions host Moot Court Competition with full on-board trial proceedings.
The Moot Court is basically an activity that is followed for the betterment of the presentation and argument skills of the students. It helps students equip themselves to the standards of the society. To participate you should have the confidence in you and you should be a generalist i.e. you should analyze the facts of the case in the general point of view with regard to the subject of the case and learn to apply the law to the facts of the case. You should be a specialist in Law dealing that particular subject, and be thorough with the latest case law and interpretation by the Supreme Court and the High Courts to get a better grip over the case or the position of the case.
Moot court members research their respective sides, write their briefs, and present oral arguments in front of the judges. Judges are free to grill the students during the presentation, and students must respond accordingly; therefore, a profound understanding of the facts of the case, their arguments, and their opponents’ arguments is required.
The Moot Court Hall or Room is like a practice room for a student to get accustomed to the atmosphere of the Courts as well as improve his skills in law and advocacy law. In a Moot Court, a hypothetical case is given to the students and are allowed to argue the given case. Moot Court helps the students of law in many ways since it is a practical legal training, which helps to build analytical reasoning, legal aptitude, team building skills and above all make them responsive and ready to join practice after competition of their degree course.
