The objective of the activity was “to provide the basic knowledge of the Client Counselling sessions and other practical aspects related to it.”
The activity started by integrating all the participants from each semester and subsequently forming a team of 3 students each. The teams were then assigned with the cases which were taken from their course subject, i.e. Law of Contract.
A total of 3 Landmark Judgements were picked for the activity, namely –
1) Balfour V. Balfour
2) Lalman Shukla V. Gauri Dutt
3) Carlill V. Carbolic Smoke Ball Co.
A total of 15 minutes were given to each team to peruse the case and form a view as to their respective roles in the activity and how to perform it. Two teams were then picked to present the facts of the above-mentioned cases by one team acting as the Client seeking legal advice and remedy from the Councilors, i.e. the other team.
The spirit of team-work displayed by each team in this activity was phenomenal. The whole activity was carried with much zeal and enthusiasm from all the participants and proved to be a great learning experience for all those who participated.
Some of the outcomes of the activity were:
Ø Allowed students to think creatively and answer convincingly when questioned and show their oratory, writing and persuasive skills.
