UAPMCC: University of Asia Pacific Moot Court Club
UAP Moot Court Club is a forum that helps students of law to learn the art of mooting, researching and advocacy skills and internalizing the spirit of layering, since from 2015. It envisions the making of such legal minds that with the utmost sense of ethics, morality and justice will thrive in every sphere of legal arena. Legal training requires the capacity to assess the facts rationally and objectively, apply relevant principles of law and legislation and bring out reasons and arguments to justify one’s stand. We believe that real life situations of legal arena can be known only when the students equip themselves fully with the practical knowledge of law. Legal education through class room learning and moot court participation stimulates the learning zeal of students.
