Moot Court Overview: What is Moot and Why it is important?

Moot court is a simulation of a trial in a real-world courtroom. The purpose of this exercise is to prepare law students for the challenges that they will face as lawyers. The moot court offers an opportunity to gain experience in advocacy and public speaking skills. It also offers an opportunity to learn how to work with judges, other lawyers, and clients. 

In a moot court exercise, students are given a moot problem. Each student is required to analyze the given problem, research the relevant law, prepare written submissions, and present an oral argument. Moot problems are typically set in areas of law that are unsettled or that have been subject to recent developments. They usually involve two grounds of appeal, argued by each side. Almost every law college has a moot court society to train students for real-life court proceedings. 

Extra Point-The first moot court was held at the University of Virginia School of Law in 1929.
