About the Moot Court Competition
The competition simulates a court hearing in which the participants shall have to analyse a problem, research the relevant law, prepare written submissions, and present oral argument.

The competition will have five rounds, viz. Preliminary Round, Octa-Final Round, Quarter Final Round, Semi-Final Round, and the Final Round.
The moot proposition will prima facie present a matrimonial dispute, however, the scope shall be kept broad to inculcate a multi-disciplinary understanding of the subject.
