The traditional system of legal education, for various reasons was not in a position to accept the challenges that came with the changing time. A new approach was then introduced by the National Law Universities which equipped the students with recent technologies, techniques & strategies for coping with the changing needs in the field of law. The ‘Court Room Exercise’ or ‘Moot Court & Mock Trial’ practice is now a part of curriculum of almost all the universities across the country. This book briefs the readers on the preparation of memorials for both national and international cases. This second edition of Moot Court & Mock Trials by Prof Dr K L Bhatia has been duly updated and revised by capturing recent cases and techniques to prepare the memorials for mooters. It would be of substantial help to the faculties and students to understand the manner and procedure of the most important aspect of legal Education.
