Lloyd Law College is conducting “Faisla” , a judgement writing competition as part of their Law fest Catalyst 2020.
Unless you think like a judge you shall not be able to convince him/her of being a lawyer. Observance of a steep inclination of law students
towards judiciary in the recent years has lead to the development of an ardent desire of imbibing the skill of “Judgment Writing”.
“Faisla” is an event strategically designed to probe the analytical and decision-making skills of a law student. This event focuses on
storming the rationality of the person along with his legal know-how.
