  • Overview:

Moot Court meaning shadow courts is a competition that enables law students to apply their intellectual mind and analytical skills in a hypothetical problem (that may be taken from a real phenomenon/case). In a Moot Court competition, the student counsel has to argue a case both orally and through submission of written ‘Memorial’ before a bench of Judges.

The Department of Law & Human Rights of University of Asia Pacific emphasizes the mooting culture to prepare the students for their careers as lawyers and judges. The Department performs its mooting related function through the two formal courses 

  • Moot Court Club:

In addition to the academic courses, the moot court activity in the Department of Law & Human Rights, conducted through a well-organized Moot Court Club. The Fresher’s Moot and Common Induction Moot was organized for the membership to the Moot Court Club. Apart from these activities, the Moot Court Club also assists the selected students in their preparation to represent the Department of Law & Human Rights, UAP at various national and international moot court competitions organized by different law institutions all over Bangladesh. The mission of Moot Court Club is written as follows:

  • 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 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 the 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 in the legal arena can be known only when the students equip themselves fully with the practical knowledge of the law. Legal education through classroom learning and moot court participation stimulates the learning zeal of students.
