About the Moot Court Competition

Law Schools play an important role in instilling and encouraging the growth of law students by hosting debates, panel discussions, International Conferences and moot court competitions as well as encouraging research and legal writing on the subjects.

As a result, the School of Law and Justice, at Adamas University is organizing a two-day National Moot Court Competition.

Annually, the Committee organizes National Moot Court Competitions.
