About The Competition

We have all come across movies that focus on narratives regarding legal practice and justice system. While some seem to embody this narrative wholeheartedly, there are others which irritate us with its irregularities and unrealistic narrative. This competition is aimed at bringing the creative side of the legal fraternity to the focus, by providing them with an opportunity to review their favourite movie, while focusing on the legal aspects and perspectives that arose in the movie. We aim to spread legal information through entertainment means, by making it an enjoyable and knowledgeable exercise.
