What is Moot Court?In my experience, the way moot court is conducted in some law colleges in India is a joke. For example, in Govt. Law College, Indore, the following is what I saw while I was a student there. A group of students (about 10-15 students) got hold of one case file from some lawyer and converted it into a script. The class room was turned into a court room. Each student was assigned a "role" and dressed up according to his role like a judge, lawyer, policeman, witness etc. Everyone crammed their lines from the script and then acted out that case file as if they were doing a drama. That's it.
What were the professors doing? They were sitting in the classroom observing the whole thing and assigning marks.
If you are a Law student and if your are reading this, please don't do it. Moot court is a very important exercise for your law career so don't waste this opportunity. Make an effort to do it the right way. Tell your teachers to conduct it the right way. It is not their but your loss if you don't.
I do not know exactly how top law institutes conduct moot court but Himanshu Kashyap, a Vth Yr Student of NLIU Bhopal has contributed his moot court material on "Expanding the ambit of Domestic Violence Act, 2005 on Muslims beyond iddat period". The following are the files:
