UWSL follows ‘multidisciplinary learning’ as emphasised in National Education Policy 2020

Through focused learning opportunities, our students dwell in the realm of impactful ideas, both inside and outside classroom. We are committed to our practical approach and therefore, provide hands-on learning experience to our students. The pedagogy at Unitedworld School of Law seeks to create leaders in the Indian legal system and society. Here, the student of B.B.A.-LL.B. (Hons.) Integrated Programme is exposed to a variety of learning methods, be it research and case studies method, or debate and moot court or through internship at law firm. As students, they can decide their own academic gradient, based on their interest and appetite for a challenge. In addition to classroom teaching, we involve our students in various research and extension programmes, including Internships at the end of each semester, for better understanding of the subject matter. Throughout the span of five years, our students get exposure to various National and International Conferences, Workshops, Seminars, Moot Court Competitions, Mock Trials, Trial Advocacy, Parliamentary Debate Competitions, Empirical Research Studies, Internships at prominent offices of advocates and corporate sectors.

Here at UWSL each student is made to participate in Moot Court and Mock Trials for the development of oral advocacy skills through a realistic appellate advocacy experience. The Moot Court Committee here engages the students in learning and analyzing legal issues, with its larger purpose being to teach their students the practical side of practicing law. The students are made to analyze a detailed hypothetical fact scenario which raises legal issues. It is the deliberation and contention of such legal issues supported by real time case laws that help in honing their argumentative and logical reasoning capacity. Another important part of the moot court process is to teach students to overcome legal authority viz., statutes, regulations, and cases that cuts against their position. Drafting of legal documents is another important aspect that is catered to by the Moot Court Committee. Regular court visits and case law analysis in classroom environment are key elements that go hand in hand with regular mock trials and court room exercises. The Moot Court Committee seeks to build top-quality mooters and researchers at the under-graduation level and encourages a hundred percent participation of each student at competitions across the globe. This further stimulates critical thinking and public speaking skills, as well as knowledge of legal practices and procedures prevalent across the globe.

Moot Court 15-16th September 2022.

Karnavati University Moot Court Society organised a 2-Day Moot Induction for the newly arrived batch of law students. The students were given a demonstration of Moot Courts and were trained for mooting on Day-1. On day Day-2 the new batch participated in a moot court competition orgainsed by the committee.
