About Legal Foxes

Legal Foxes is a multi-disciplinary law firm and E Learning Platform based in Delhi focusing primarily on spreading legal literacy among all people.

About the Competition

The main advantages of this contest are to cultivate the knack/art of writing judgements among students to push the students to write the judgement within prescribed timeline. The students are given the feel of assuming the role of the judge. While performing this role, sometimes they would modify the judgements, at times they would supply the missing judge on the bench, say by engaging in feminist or ablistic styles of judicial reasoning.

The students are also encouraged to do research, to explore possible criticism against the judgement or even to completely substitute the new judgement with the existing one. However on the balance of advantages and limitations, we feel that Alternate Judgement writing is a good initiative to ignite the minds of the students and encourage them to assume the shoes both lawyers and judges.

The greatest strength of this contest is to engage the students with multi-tasking of both creative lawyering and innovative judging. Students are also required to practice the art of writing judgement within the bounds of judicial process so that their judgements may prove to be guidelines or tipping points which judiciary in real time may employ.

The Judgment Writing Competition will have the following principles and purpose:

  1. To develop a judicious mind.
  2. To apply legal concepts with a clarity of thought.
  3. To promote the spirit of rule of law and justice.
  4. To interpret the law in a justifiable manner with a view to meet ends of justice.
