The main aim of the event is to create awareness with respect to Patent laws, ethics, regulation policies, procedures, Pharmacy law and working of the FDA – one of the world’s most comprehensive and effective networks of public health and consumer protection. The moot ‘court’ should reflect, as far as possible, a courtroom scene in reality. Moot court does not involve actual testimony by witnesses, cross-examination, or the presentation of evidence, but is focused solely on the application of the law to a common set of evidentiary assumptions and facts to which the competitors must be introduced The moot is presided over by at least one judge who delivers a judgment at the end of the moot on the law and on the result of the moot itself. As many students will be aware, the legal profession is an increasingly difficult one to enter. Mooting may also help the students to build confidence in public speaking, general research, and presentation skills. In other words, mooting experience can benefit every student whether or not they plan to follow a traditional legal career path upon graduation.
