“Real education is attained not merely by the amount of information one puts in one’s brain, one may have the whole library dumped into one’s heart but if you are not in a position to put the amount of knowledge into practice and assimilate ideas, you whole amount of stored knowledge is like undigested food in the stomach,” he said.

The mega competition is unique specially designed with an objective to train the students in the area of trial advocacy and to cultivate in them the art of presenting their arguments with the authority of law,” Course Coordinator, School of Law, KU, Dr Muhammad Yasin Wani, told Greater Kashmir.
