Kshitizz is an NGO formed and registered by the students of Damodaram Sanjivayya National Law University (DSNLU), Visakhapatnam. It was created out of ambition and curiosity among the students to change the world.
About the Competition
Studying Law is not easy. A student, academician, or practitioner is required to undertake various tasks as long as s/he is associated with the field. One such being the preparation of case summaries- for exams, during internships, for moots, for teaching, or presentation before a Court of Law, this is a task one has to undertake frequently.
These summaries once used either find a place in some folder of laptops or are discarded. Kshitizz NGO has decided to put these summaries to use by organizing this competition. Kshitizz NGO aims not only to reward these painstaking efforts but also to encourage others to write and submit such summaries.
The competition is not theme-specific. Participants may choose any reported Indian case as per their interest.
Academicians, practitioners, researchers, students, and others interested in the field may send original, unpublished case summaries to casesummary.kshitizz[at]gmail.com.
