Faculty of Law, Jamnalal Bajaj School of Legal Studies, Banasthali Vidyapith organized Intra Moot Court Competition 2019 for the first year students during February & March 2019. The moot problem was on Consumer Protection Act, 1986. The finals for the same took place on 31 Mar 2019.

The word "moot" is said to originate from a Scandinavian word meaning simply a meeting and the meetings concerned were assemblies of the members of a community for legislative or judicial purposes. The word took its present meaning in the English Inns of Court in the sixteenth century where law students would present their legal arguments on a given set of factual circumstances (often resembling real cases) before one or several senior lawyers or judges. Aspiring lawyers gain experience in the art of persuasion, without having to gain such experience at the risk of inadvertently damaging a real client's interests.
