Sukhmani Singh, second year student of Campus Law Centre, Faculty of Law, Delhi University, was part of the winning team at a recently-held moot court competition. She shares her experience.
Mooting is an essential ingredient of life in a law school. It is also the best way to put classroom study to practical use. The mooting season kicked off with the 12annual Raj Anand Intellectual Property Moot Court Competition organised by the law firm, Anand and Anand. Pravin Anand, managing partner of the firm, is an alumnus from faculty of law, University of Delhi. Hence, we were eager to put in our best and make him proud. There were 16 teams in total, participating in the moot court competition. Our team from the Campus Law Centre, faculty of law, DU, comprised two speakers, Aayush Agarwala and Tahini Bhushan from third year and a researcher, Aditya Mathur, also from the third year. I was fortunate to work with them as an additional researcher. This was my first moot court competition and I eagerly looked forward to learn and imbibe mooting techniques. Preparing for a moot court competition is like a journey full of learning and assimilation of legal knowledge. Although we were late in starting our preparation, we were, nevertheless, determined to put in our best. The moot problem this year centred on cloud computing service-providers and preservation of trade secrets - one of the most talked-about issues in cyber law and intellectual property rights today. After reading and discussing the moot problem comprehensively, the first task was to frame issues, to help us build arguments further. After this, began our research, which comprised library visits, sitting online for hours, etc. This was also the time when our team members bonded with each other and became friends. Once our written memorials were submitted we moved on to prepare arguments for the speakers. The main task or practical aspect of the competition begins here. While the speakers prepared their arguments, the rest of the team sat together and listened, cross questioned, analysed the arguments, etc. All this was being done just a week prior to the competition. Finally, on the day of the competition, our speakers, Aayush and Tahini, put forth their arguments with skill and dexterity and answered every question posed by the bench. The bench comprised Justice Anil Dave, Justice Gita Mittal and Justice JR Midha. While we won the competition, this moot was a rare opportunity for us to learn about the complicated yet interesting field of trade laws. In fact, it was a great learning experience for all of us.
