“Kourtology” which refers to “the study of courts” aims at providing budding lawyers with a platform to learn the practical insights to working of a court.
Model Trial Court Competition:
With the help of “Model Trial Virtual Court Competition” Kourtology brings a new method for law students to get an in-depth knowledge on how the courts proceedings transpire. It aims to provide law students with the opportunity to draft pleadings similar to what is filed in actual courts. Similarly, it gives an opportunity to students to present their cases as they are presented before a court. Given the situation during the on-going pandemic, the functioning of the courts had a paradigm shift, introducing the concepts of E-courts, which is another prospect that Model Trial Virtual Court Competition desires to fulfill.
The aim is to bring forward the idea of practical learning while creating an environment of professionalism and maintaining the court etiquette. In short, the aim is to unleash the lawyer within you.
