Coach- Matching Scheme launches Now
Aiming at easing the nerve of the students to participate in the Moot Court and providing a platform for them to dive deep into relevant subjects further, we are rolling out this Coach-Matching Scheme. The Scheme is to recruit senior lawyers, arbitrators, and academics to serve as external coaches for the participating teams. Coaches will be randomly assigned to participating teams, subject to the arrangements by the Organizer.
