Moot Court competitions are one of a few things that the budding lawyers enjoy the most as they get to know the practicalities of law as a student. Panjab University Students have a history of having an edge over moots as compared to the other students of nearby universities and colleges. Both the UILS and Three year Law Department of PU have able and intelligent students who have a great career to make as an Advocate. This time again two students of Law Department bring laurels to the University by winning the second inter-college Panjab University Swami Sarvanand Giri Regional Centre (PUSSGRC) Moot Court competition, which was organised at Panjab University Regional Centre (PURC), Hoshiarpur campus.

Two students were awarded with the best student Advocate. Salil Goel from the Department of Laws was awarded as the Best Student Advocate and the award for the second best student advocate was received by Shiwani Thakur. While talking to newsnumber, Shiwani Thakur, Himachal based Young and Budding Lawyer asserted that Moots are in a way a great platform for the Lawyers and Advocates as they enhance your field knowledge apart from the theoretical knowledge. She also expressed her gratitude towards the teachers for motivation and encouragement.

Various eminent dignitaries including  Vipul Ujwal, DC, Hoshiarpur; Justice Rajan Gupta, Sitting judge, Punjab and Haryana High Court; Justice (Retd.) Rakesh Kumar Garg, Chairman, Punjab Commission for NRIs; J. Ellanchezhian, SSP, Hoshiarpur; Sunil K. Arora, District and Sessions Judge, Hoshiarpur and Dr. HS Bains, Director, PUSSGRC were present at the occasion.
