About IMPROMPTU MOOT

Lawyers are about as spontaneous as the hands on a clock. Spontaneity has always been the essence of law students. Legal spontaneity helps in assessing credibility. As a name itself suggest an impromptu moot is a form of moot competition in which moot problem is not provided to the student beforehand but on the spot. Participants must be quick-witted who are able to demonstrate their spontaneity in legal knowledge and the ability to solve problems on the spot. Unlike traditional moots impromptu moot is something which requires no written submissions, no months of preparation in advance, thus is a great way to get into mooting with a minimal time commitment.
