Moot Court

Moot Court activity, part of clinical legal training, equips the students to gain practical experience, improve analytical reasoning, legal aptitude, and presentation and communication skills. The moot court helps the students in understanding bar and bench relationship. It helps to inculcate good court-room techniques, processes and discipline among the students.

ICFAI University internalizes the moot court process into the curriculum throughout the program as it strongly feels that moot court helps the students in understanding the requirements of clients and courts in the real life situations. A student is made to learn the legal issues associated with the case and prepare the briefs and arguments. The mock trials help in understanding the requirements of the clients and prepare in a direction.

Students are encouraged to participate in the national and international moot court competitions. In every semester, one intra-college moot court competition is organized by the ICFAI University so that students imbibe the qualities of a professional lawyer.

ICFAI University is committed to social cause and contributes to the society by way of spreading legal awareness, legal literacy and by providing legal services. It plans to coordinate with the District and State Legal Services Authorities in solving the disputes of the local people. As part of Legal Aid Program, the students undertake some of the programs under the supervision of the faculty and Legal Service Authorities. These programs help the poor and needy who cannot afford the services of a lawyer for the conduct of a case or a legal proceeding in any court, tribunal or before an authority. Students learn how to handle clients who are illiterate and poor.

They will be also helping the citizens to understanding the rights they have under the constitution and other enactments.

These initiatives aim at making the students independent before they plunge into the competitive professional environment.
