The 5th Amity National Moot Court Competition concluded on March 5 at the premises of the Amity Law School, New Delhi. The competition was held from March 3 to March 5 where Government Law College emerged as the clear winner.

A moot court competition is a mock court, where law students argue a fictional case before practicing advocates and sitting judges of the High Court and Supreme Court. Competitors are required to argue from both sides, so that they might gauge and analyse the legal issue in a balanced manner.

The competition saw a dazzling display of advocacy from students from 18 law colleges across the country. The finals were judged by a distinguished bench of the honourable Delhi High Court, consisting of Justice Arjan Sikri, Justice S K Kaul, Justice S Ravindra Bhat, Justice Gita Mittal and Justice Sanjiv Khanna.

They witnessed a close contest between Government Law College, Mumbai, and National Law School of India University, Bangalore, with Government Law College emerging the winner by a close margin.

The judges uniformly complimented the participants on their legal acumen and commended the amount of effort put in by all the teams in preparing their written submissions and arguments. This year’s moot court was held to commemorate the centenary of Shri H M Seervai, eminent constitutional jurist.
