DESCRIBE YOURSELF BRIEFLY (subject inclination, personal comfort in speaking or researching, background, experience, etc.)

Role in the team: Researcher
HOW DID YOU COMPREHEND THE MOOT PROBLEM EFFECTIVELY? ANY TIPS?
By reading it thoroughly again and again. There is no another substitute for it. You have to read moot problem N number of times. This is the exercise which you should continue even till your last day of memorial submission. The second thing is; discuss and debate. Discussion is as important as reading a moot problem. It will help to explore various dimensions and hidden aspects, which will ultimately makes the difference.
WHAT WERE THE MAJOR CHALLENGES THAT YOU FACED WHILE RESEARCHING/ PREPARING FOR ORAL ROUNDS ON THE PROPOSITION?
Since this was the very 1st inter-college moot competition for us, so it has its own challenges. Mooting virtually was surely a new experience for all of us.
WHAT PART OF THE PREPARATION AND RESEARCH DID YOU LIKE THE MOST AND WHY?
The best part was to crack the proposition and prepare the story for both the sides, we would sit together daily and each of us would propose a story and others shall find out the loopholes and refine it. In this process, you would feel like you are a part of the case.
WHAT IS THE ROLE OF A MENTOR IN THIS MOOT? IS IT NECESSARY TO HAVE A MENTOR?
We don’t have any mentor for this moot. Frankly speaking, if you have a mentor, then good, else it does not going to make any big difference, provided you have a thrust for researching, learning and winning the competition.
WHAT’S THE BIGGEST LESSON AND TAKE AWAY YOU WOULD SAY?
Time tests you and you should give that test with a smile 🙂
ANY THREE MOST IMPORTANT TIPS YOU WOULD LIKE TO GIVE THE COMING TEAMS?
- Just work hard: There is no substitute for hard work.
- Trust your team and yourself.
- Just keep going things fall in place, Don’t settle until you achieve the desired goal.
