Moot Court

Description

A moot court is an extracurricular activity at the faculty in which students take part in simulated court proceedings, which usually involves drafting briefs (or memorials) and participating in oral argument.

There is an active and vibrant student association which is known as Law Society. The society is composed of all law students and its activities regeared towards inculcating legal ethics in the student preparatory to entering the legal profession. This society acts as a vehicle through which interaction is maintained between it and the Faculty authorities (academic and non-academic) with a view to creating a friendly atmosphere of understanding which is a pre-requisite for excellent academic performance. The Law Society also engages in social activities which sometime take it outside the University campus.

Chambers

Apart from the “Law Society” there are other associations in the Faculty which are established for purpose of moot trial practice. These associations enact acts upon which legal doctrine and principle are brought to bear in a bid to administer justice.

These associations include:

  1. Annur Chambers
  2. Attorneys Chambers
  3. Equity Chambers
  4. Advocate Chambers
  5. Liberty chambers
  6. Precision Chambers
  7. Realist Chambers
In addition to moot trials, these associations encourage healthy competition amongst themselves but most importantly, they are active participants in "clinical legal education” under the strict supervision of moot court coordinator (who must be a staff, who has a strong flare for advocacy)
