In the 21st century, for us, Homo sapiens to become alpha males, possession of technical knowledge is of paramount importance.
With the present rate of advancements in technology, conquering space is a thing of the past. At the same time, the field of law has also undergone tremendous change to keep pace with the world of science. In such a dynamic age, there is a pressing need for young professionals who are skilled in both technical and legal fields.
The Techno-Legal moot renders the same purpose and in addition to this, it even broadens the scope of thinking and understanding by keeping it in parlance with the present scenario.
