The competition comprised of 27 teams from all over India, with all the top national law schools participating.

The team's position was 7th at the National level and was appreciated by the judges and fellow participants for their research and presentation skills. It was a great learning experience for all of us. 

With our experience and the reviews given by the judges, we would like to suggest the teams participating in different moot court competitions, to keep in mind the following points during their preparation:

  • Please be thorough with the facts of the case, your research and the compendium.
  • The rules of the competition should be thoroughly interpreted, specially the rules regarding the drafting of the memorials.

Jail visit to Tihar Prisons, New Delhi

A team of nine students and one faculty from Amity Legal Aid Cell, Amity Law School, AUUP visited Central Jail No. 5 of Tihar Prisons on 19th Sept, 2012. The main objective of the jail visit was to review and kick-start the Cell’s Prison Legal Aid Programme.
The team comprised of Asst. Prof. Utkarsh Yadav along with the following student members:
1.      Shekhar Banerjee
2.      Arnab Ghosal
3.      Tanmoy Sukul
4.      Raunak Satpathy
5.      Ishan Tewari
6.      Apoorva Singh
7.      Devika Gulati
8.      Ruchir Goenka
9.      Purva Sethi

The team arrived at Tihar Prisons Complex at 1100hrs and were accompanied inside Jail No. 5 by jail superintendant Mr. B.R. Meena. Once inside, the team got a rare opportunity to get an insight into the life of an inmate.
Asia’s largest Prison complex follows the reformative principle of punishment, wherein, every inmate is given the opportunity to start afresh a new life by acquiring the necessary required skills. The objective of this institution is to convert inmates into normal members of the society, providing them with useful skills in order to rehabilitate and reform them. The inmates are encouraged to work in the prison’s numerous factories, giving them the chance to acquire skills required to manufacture different products like shoes, detergent, soaps, incense, pottery, food items etc., hence, helping them build a base for an honest livelihood after completion of their sentences. The inmates are paid for their work in these factories, which they can use after their release. Inmates have access to various recreational facilities like sports, music, etc., and those interested in fulfilling their educational dreams can do so by enrolling into the numerous courses offered at Tihar. After completion of these courses, the inmates are handed Degrees by Indira Gandhi National Open University, and are then put on placements. One inmate has been known to have held forty four Degrees, while another reported a pay package of 9 Lakhs per annum.
Reformation can never be possible without properly nurturing the mind, and hence, Tihar also provides for extracurricular activities by organising Yoga and Vipassana Meditation camps, with the help of organisations like Art of Living, Divya Jyoti Jagriti Sansthan, Kumari Ishwariya Vishvavidyalaya , etc.

Every Jail in Tihar houses a Legal Aid Cell with facilities for drafting, typing and dealing with bail applications, appeals, revision etc. on behalf of the Jail inmates. It was noted by the team that while the existence of such Cells was commendable, hardly any of the lawyers appointed would ever show up in court on behalf of their clients. Thus, not many of the inmates were happy with the working of the Cell. The team expressed their interest in working with under trials in order to fast forward their bail applications and reduce the overwhelming population of the prison. To this, the Prison Welfare Officer suggested that Amity Legal Aid Cell tie up with Delhi Legal Services Authority to fulfil this objective.
The team members made it a point to question the Jail Superintendent and Welfare Officer on various issues relating from prisoner living conditions to security systems installed to welfare provisions for family members. After a long interactive session, the visit was concluded and with a vote of thanks to the Jail Superintendant and Law Officer, the team left the Prison Complex at 1330hrs.

HT Fresh on campus

Hindustan Times is organizing 'Fresh on Campus' contest for freshers on Tuesday, 4th September, 2012. The contest will be held at I-2 Moot Court from 12:00 noon onwards.


“Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth.” This very famous quote by the 44th president of the United States was the bone of contention as the fresher’s took to the floor to express themselves in the debate organized on the 27th of august 2012. The topic in discussion was “We have a democratic system but not democratic values.” 

The event was opened by Major Gen. Nilendra Kumar, Director of Amity Law School, NOIDA with very positive words which helped in boosting the confidence of the fledglings of the college. This was then followed by the opening speech delivered by Mr. Syed Safder Ali Kazmi, the Convener of this prestigious society. After his address Miss Aiman Kulsoom Rizvi took over as the Chair Person for the debate. Sakshi Futela, Abhinav Mishra, Siddhanth Mehta and Ruchir Goenka were of excellent assistance to make sure that the debate was a successful event with their photography, policing and time keeping skills respectively. The Debate wouldn’t have been possible without the able guidance of Dr. Niru Sharan. The elite panel of judges consisited of Mrs.Vandana Nalini Singh, Mrs. Ritu Singh and Mrs. Ekta Gupta, who very efficiently judged the debate in a very ‘Democratic’ and impartial way. 

There were 12 participants all together, 6 for the motion and 6 against the motion. Nervousness showed very clearly as each participant came forward to share his views but then managed to put up a brilliant show .This was the original intention behind the event, of removing the stage fear of the participants and helping them express their views effectively and convincingly. Even though all performed commendably there could only have been three winners. The First prize was awarded to Miss Sana Khan of B.A.,LL.B(H) the Second prize was awarded to Mr. Keshav Seth and the Third prize was awarded to Mr. Manashwy. 

Last but not the least, Prashant Shukla, Deputy Convener of the Society, Adhish Sharma and Sayak Chakraborty also provided much needed assistance in the smooth conduct of the Debate.
