Moot Court
Gujarat National Law University strives to integrate the theoretical and practical aspects of law by conducting various moot court and client counselling activities on a semester basis. The Moot Court Committee is entrusted with the responsibility of facilitating and administering such exercises through its rigorous qualifying mechanism involving two rounds of mooting.

Intra Rounds

The first round usually witnesses the participation of over a 100 students in teams of two to tackle a moot problem ordinarily involving domestic Indian laws and Indian courts as their main forum of adjudication. At the end of this round, a Rank List entailing the Oralists as well as the Researchers ranks will be produced. On the availability of moots, a cut-off limit is determined and a selected number of successful participants (usually the top 80-90) then move to individually compete in the 2nd level where the moot problem will be structured around public international law or international arbitration. Various international and national moot court competitions are then allotted on the basis of the ranks obtained in the 2nd round. The oral rounds will be judged on the ability of the participants to identify legal issues, research exhaustively in the prescribed areas of law and endurance before a gruelling bench.
Following are the moot achievements recorded for the year 2011-2016:
