The Moot Court is basically an activity that is followed for enhancing the presentation and argument skills of the students. It helps students to equip themselves to the standards of the society. To participate actively one should have the confidence and should be a generalist i.e. one should analyze the facts of the case in the general point of view in regard to the subject of the case and learn to apply the law to the facts of the case. Students are expected to 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.
In a Moot court a hypothetical case is given to the students and they are allowed to argue the given case. Moot Court helps the students of law in many ways since it is a sort of practical legal training, which helps to build analytical reasoning, legal aptitude, team building skills and above all make them responsive.
