CALL FOR PAPERS | FIRST NATIONAL CASE SUMMARY WRITING COMPETITION | REGISTER BY APRIL 25, 2020

About the Organiser

Kshitizz is an NGO formed and registered by the students of Damodaram Sanjivayya National Law University (DSNLU), Visakhapatnam. It was created out of ambition and curiosity among the students to change the world.

The Competition

Studying Law is not easy. A student, academician, or practitioner is required to undertake various tasks as long as s/he is associated with the field. One such being the preparation of case summaries- for exams, during internships, for moots, for teaching, or presentation before a Court of Law, this is a task one has to undertake frequently. These summaries once used either find a place in some folder of laptops or are discarded. We at Kshitizz, have decided to put these summaries to use by organizing this competition. We aim not only to reward these painstaking efforts but also to encourage others to write and submit such summaries. We will honour the best ones by awarding prizes and giving due recognition to all participants through a certificate of participation. We also propose to publish select entries in the form of a book with ISBN by our Publication partners, CB Educational Services LLP.
