HSL Moot Court Committee
The Moot Court Committee is a platform for the young legal minds to chisel their edges and sharpen their thinking. As the quote says, “Excellence is the gradual result of always striving to do better”. The Moot Court Committee is managed by the HSL students under the guidance of faculty advisors entrusted with the responsibility of administrating all mooting related activities at HSL. It involve indentifying legal issues in a given fact scenario, advancing legal arguments after extensive research followed by drafting a written submission and finally representing these arguments in front of eminent judges. Mooting, in short is the closest a student is to being a lawyer while still in law school. Mooting helps students grow more comfortable and confident while arguing in front of judges and honing the essential skills for being an advocate.
