The team comprised of second year LLB students from CLC spoke of their experience and said,
"To argue on Constitutional Law is the most unparalleled joy for us. The competition was a greatly enriching experience for our team. Each round preceded draw of lots for choosing the sides to argue. This was the best part of the whole competition which helped us sharpen our advocacy skills. The dilemma of an advocate is to argue on whatever side he is called to do so, irrespective if his own opinions. All the teams had done great research, thereby raising the quality of the competition. Overall, it became a cherish-able memory for us because firsts are always special. It was a pleasure to earn extremely positive comments from the audience."
