    1st Online National Celebrity Advocacy Competition, 2020: Law Central

    ABOUT THE ORGANISATION

    Law Central is an autonomous body initiated to provide a platform to law students where they can actively participate in various legal activities and competitions. Law is called a jealous mistress and there is no room in it for the lazy and mediocre. We intend to bring out the best amongst students by fostering in them a sense of competitiveness. Our vision is to inculcate a feeling of professionalism and responsibility in budding lawyers. Moreover, we prosper to create a network of legal communities to facilitate interactions among lawyers to today.

    ABOUT THE COMPETITION

    “No man is above the law and no man is below it, nor do we ask any man’s permission when we ask him to obey it. Obedience to the law is demanded as a right, not asked as a favor”.

    -Theodore Roosevelt

    This competition is an individual event. The main aim of this event so introduced remains to give the student of law a taste of fame, and the pressure that comes along with such fame. It shall enhance the productive outcome when the “lawyer to be” is put under pressure in a hypothetical simulation of a High Profile Celebrity case. In this event, a participant shall be assigned a controversial celebrity character who may be of National or International significance and the participant has to prosecute or
    defend the assigned controversial character as his/her advocate.

    Law Central is organizing Online Celebrity Advocacy Competition, 2020 to highlight the necessity of social distancing despite bringing in the students together to a competitive platform.
