For students of law, mooting is perhaps the most important skill one must hone. To facilitate the students in getting optimum mooting experience, the Army Institute of Law holds the Intra-Institute Moot Court Competition annually.
The final round of the Intra-Institute Moot Court Competition 2018 was held on the 12th of April 2018. The competition was conducted over 2 preliminary rounds held on 10th and 11th of April 2018 and semi-final and final round held on the 12th.
The competition saw 16 teams fighting out the Proposition prepared by Mr. Anil Malhotra, senior advocate. The preliminary and semi-final rounds were presided by faculty members of the institute. Gracing the bench for the final round were Justice Dipak Sibal, Judge, Punjab & Haryana High Court, Prof. Dr. Rattan Singh, Director Panjab University and Mr. Anil Malhotra, Senior Advocate, Punjab & Haryana High Court.
Reaching the finals were Team 1 comprising Shweta Nair and Akanksha Duvedi (1st Year) appearing as petitioners and Team 12 comprising Parika Bhardwaj (3rd Year) and Anshul Singh (2nd Year) appearing as petitioners.
