'Youth for Sustainable Development with special focus on Watershed Management and Wasteland Development. Every year 50 percent of the volunteers of each NSS unit are expected to participate in special camps which is of seven days duration.
The College has a tradition of organizing Moot Court Competitions. The first year students are introduced to mooting through Primera which is the moot competition exclusively for the first year students who just joined the College to pursue law. Students are selected on the basis of their performance as well as aptitude to be trained extensively in mooting & mock trials. Further to Primera, the college organizes the intra-college moot which hunts the talent of advocacy within the college. The selected students are then graded and trained to participate in various International, National and local mooting events.
Every year the college organizes city level and state level moot competitions to enable our students to meet and compete with students of other colleges. This helps our students to hone their skills of advocacy as well as writing case memorials. The Hallmark of the college is however the RLC National Moot Court competition. Twenty Four top law schools from all over India are selected on the basis of the written submissions submitted by them. The judging panel for this competition consists of sitting judges of the Supreme Court of India and High Courts of different states. This popular event is generally inaugurated by distinguished guests like his Excellency the Governor or the Chief Justice of India or the Union Law Minister.
The college students’ body consists of various committees. Mooting being a co-curricular activity is given the highest importance in the life of the students. The students involve themselves in every aspect of the organization of the National Moots. From research and drafting of the case (all the earlier three National Moot Competitions focused on Medico-legal issues) to the sending of invitations (about hundred colleges are invited and twenty four are selected), inviting attorneys as judges in the preliminary and semi-final rounds and the sitting High Court Judges as the judges for the final round, hosting the guests and arranging their boarding and travel plans, the students participation is complete.
The College finds itself listed on the Indian Mooting League as well as on legallyindia.com. The enquiries for the National event start several months in advance with newer colleges wanting to be included in the invitation list. With this overwhelming response for our mooting events in the past, we intend to reach new heights by proposing to organize an International Moot Court Competition by the end of 2011. Rizvi Law College would be one of the first colleges in India to organize an international moot court competition in India.
Our students have already started preliminary research on framing the issues for the International Moot Court Competition. The compromise would be based on issues related to humanitarian law, Stability of Borders, Problems of secession and self-determination.
