Soon after the Inaugural session, the first Working session on “Decoding the moot proposition” began.

Working Session 3: Preparing the Memorial Structure

This session started by them giving an overview of preparing the memorial structure where we were told that “Research is the most important part of any moot preparation. Research never ends, not even on the day of the moot. However, the formatting of your memorial is also very important, and many people tend to forget that which is why their memorial score is the reason for low team ranks”.

Working Session 4: Discussion on 3rd Seth Jagan Nath Bajaj National Moot Competition-We discussed about the moot proposition which our university is organizing, we got to know about the basics of drafting, specific word usage, hierarchy of authorities etc. It was very helpful to us as it made our work easier and which could save a lot of time while preparing a proposition as they’ve told us various shortcuts along with couple of strategies which would make our moot proposition presentable.
