National Moot Court Competition

Moot court is generally an extracurricular activity in law school (although some law schools have a mandatory version of this activity as part of their curriculum). A legal question or issue is said to be moot when it presents no actual controversy, or where the issue has ceased to exist. Thus, moot court is a forum for law students to argue moot or hypothetical cases. Participating in moot court requires researching and writing a brief, and then presenting oral argument before judges who will render a decision. Moot court is structured as a competition testing knowledge of students’ advocacy skills. Moot court is valuable in the sense that the participants are doing things that real lawyers do; this aspect distinguishes it from most law school activities. Moot court presents law students with an opportunity to engage in the functional equivalent of handling a case on appeal following a trial court's judgment. Additionally, it provides students with experience in legal research, legal writing, and oral argument, which are all applicable to the more general practice of law. We at Ochre (India) conceptualize, plan and execute such intellectually simulating activities right from its inception. The institutes can thereby completely rely upon us for successful execution of such big event. Many times, due to shortage of working force at the university/ department such large-scale events do not take place in the desired manner but if it’s done with a professional help it may have immense potential to boost up the image of the university/ institution. We at Ochre (India) maintain complete transparency with regards to the management of such events. Along with this specific service we also train the volunteers for such grand events, provide free life coaching workshops and many more.

International Conference (with publication in UGC- CARE Listed or SCOPUS Journal)

Conferences are an essential part of academic life, but with all of the focus on getting papers accepted and the stress of presenting or giving talks, they can sometimes feel like an overwhelming or even scary experience. One of the biggest benefits of attending a conference is getting to know other people in your field. It is a well-established fact that conferences are a key opportunity for networking. Networking is very important for overall career development. It's also helpful to have support from people who are at a similar stage in their careers to you and can empathise with the problems and struggles which you go through at work. If you want to know about the very latest findings in your field before they are even published in journals, then a conference is the place to be. Conference is a great chance to get a peek of what other people are working on. Soft skills are important for every career, especially in academia or research. Fortunately, conferences give you the chance to practice these skills. We at Ochre (India) understand these benefits and therefore offer this experience to students and institutions. We help the institutions to organize international conferences with the theme of their preference and give additional benefits for overall academic grooming to the students of that institution.

Skill Enhancement Programme- National Level (for PG students and faculty)

It has been long believed that the most important resource that any institution of higher education has is its faculty members who teach knowledge and skills to students. Traditionally most universities recruited faculty members more for their content knowledge and clinical skills rather than for their educational skills due to which, the shortcoming in teaching performance are realised. Faculty members need to be prepared enough by some sort of Skill Enhancement Programme in order to deal with the rapid changes and shifting paradigms in education and its application. Without such training, teaching is often reduced to instructors presenting their understanding of the subject by one-way lecturing. In recent times, there has been accumulating evidence about the ineffectiveness of the traditional way of teaching. Many scholars have stressed that Skill Enhancement Programmes needed to expand faculty’s focus, consider different training methods and formats, and encourage new partnerships and collaborations. The prototype of Skill Enhancement Programme would be a short, focused series of training workshops providing exposure to sound teaching principles, educational techniques, or chosen topics, ideally with some opportunity to practice newly acquired skills. These short-term programs typically addressed very limited content and teaching objectives, such as clinical educational skills, curriculum design etc. Such Skill Enhancement Programme also help those students (PG) who want to enter into academics as the programme includes topics such as, ways to write an effective research paper, Tips to identify good (Valid) journals, ways to write a good research proposal, Research Methodology, Effective teaching methods etc.
