Skill Development


As a lawyer whether you are negotiating a contract or defending a client in court, the ability to articulate your client’s position in a succinct and persuasive manner is always helpful. According to Aristotle, a Greek philosopher’s theory of justice, Justice means giving people what they deserve. But the real question should begin when we argue about who deserves what and why and therefore for a law student, it becomes imperative to develop the art of arguing. The art of debate involves mastering skills of obvious intrinsic value: the confidence to speak in public, and make sense; the construction of a logical argument; the ability to read an audience’s reactions; and, perhaps most importantly, the willingness to hear others’ arguments, and to respond to them.

Elocution & Public Speaking:

The field of advocacy is all about public presentation. Public speaking is a skill that can be cultivated and enhanced with professional qualities. With this aim, the workshop was conducted to impart theoretical and practical knowledge of public speaking and presentation. The students gained knowledge about intricacies of elocution, extempore, debate, and public speaking. The workshop helped a great deal in shaping the students’ argumentative and oratory skills. Also it provided a boost in the confidence of some students who feared public speaking.
