Moot Court

One of the most essential parts of the Law School at DME is its Moot Court Society. The Delhi Metropolitan Education Moot Court Society (DMEMCS) was established in 2014.

“A lawyer must know everything about everything.”
– Advocate Jaggi

The event commenced with lighting of the lamp and seeking blessings of Goddess Saraswati at the Nelson Mandela Auditorium. The Chief Guest, Advocate Naveen Kumar Jaggi,was felicitated with his favourite flowers from Amsterdam along with a memento and shawl.

The client approached the counsel of the said team with her problem which was acknowledged by them with patience. Though the lawyers had few solutions in hand for the client, they missed certain crucial details only to be pointed out later by Advocate Jaggi. There were two rounds for each team. He remarked, “A lawyer must know everything about everything.” He highlighted the fact that there are two types of clients who approach a lawyer, one is genuine and the other deliberately misstates to gain benefits. It is for the lawyer to dig into the client’s mind and elicit facts. Team 117 failed to heed to the advise and repeated the mistakes. Next was Team 101 who made the same mistakes, again pointed out by the Chief Guest. They stood out and marked a difference only because they could grasp the ideas successfully and it was much appreciated. It led to the change of circumstances for the client as well as for the counsel on whichAdvocate Jaggi remarked, “One should outsmart the client, the layman.”

The counselling concluded with the Award Distribution ceremony. The North Cap University bagged the first prize and MNLU, Nagpur was the runner-up at the competition.
