The NDSLS is responsible for the organisation of a variety of competitions each year. Our competitions provide the opportunity for students to develop their practical legal skills in a supportive, engaging and interesting environment. We provide a diverse range of internal and external competitive opportunities, primarily:
- Client Interview
- Paper Presentation
- Witness Examination
Each competition is modelled after real life situations and each case draws inspiration from realistic legal issues and concepts. These competitions are made with a focus on research skills, strong oral and written communication, logical and critical thinking as well as creative problem solving.
Many of the most rewarding experience at law school come from these competitions, as always we welcome the participation of all our students. The rewards of participating in competitions extend well beyond applying what you learn in lectures and create an everlasting impact on your professional legal skills and development.
