A moot court is a replica of real court proceedings. The purpose of moot court competitions is to make students aware of the court proceedings related to disputes between parties. AMCC aims to conduct one Intra and on Inter University Moot Court Competition every year in order to overall legal development of students. Moot courts have two teams- Defendants and Respondents. The mooting presents a hypothetical case and both teams are required to research it and represent their arguments. It is used as tool of persuasive advocacy to train the future generation of lawyers.
Trial Advocacy is a competition to cultivate, enhance, appreciate, honor and reward the trial legal skills amongst law students. It is to simulate real trial court's scenarios, imparting training to participants in legal practices and to promote competitive spirit to ensure the development of advocacy finesse. It involves the whole trial process unlike Moot. Students in Trial Advocacy represent a party, prepare a case for trial and try the case before judges, who are usually law professors, and even from judiciary.
In competitive debates, teams compete against each other and are judged the winner by a list of criteria that is usually based around the concepts of "content, style, and strategy". It involves formal disclosure on a particular topic on both pro and con sides.
The Client Counseling competition addresses fundamental skills necessary for all successful attorneys, namely the ability to interview, counsel, and support a client through their legal issue. Competitors conduct an initial interview with a person playing the role of the client and then address both the client’s legal and non-legal needs. Students are called on to explain various aspects of the attorney-client relationship, build rapport, determine client goals, and consider applicable law and options that may be available to the client.
The judgement writing competition involves a comprehensive approach towards law in terms of theory and implication of law. The legal arguments on facts and situations with legal precedents and reasoning pave way for judgement writing.
Parliamentary debates are a great platform for law students to ingrain confidence and finesse in expression. In Parliamentary Debate competition there are two teams comprising three members each, one team speaking in favor of the motion, known as ‘the Government’ and the other team speaks averse, known as ‘the Opposition’. The speakers from the government side are Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Minister and Government Whip. Similarly, the speakers from the Opposition side are Leader of Opposition, Deputy Leader of Opposition and the Opposition Whip.
