About the event
Covid Sahyog is a non-profit social initiative, started by the students of NLU Jodhpur. It was initiated in the wake of the pandemic to assist the people across India with COVID-19 resources. It has more than 4000 volunteers from all the states and union territories of India.
Rehana’s Dreams is another non-profit organization envisioned by some students of National Law University, Jodhpur. Its aim is to primarily help children. It has previously organised a highly successful literary event in 2020 which goes by the name ‘Penlightenment’.
As the Second Wave of COVID-19 pandemic subsides in India gradually, the two organizations aim to take a step forward and provide financial assistance to those people who have recovered from the disease but are still vulnerable to the effects of unemployment, inflation, insolvency, etc. The proceeds of the present event will be utilized for this noble cause.
Covid Sahyog in collaboration with Rehana’s Dreams, is hosting a fundraiser event, ‘Learning about ‘Why’, ‘When’ and ‘How’ one should moot in the early semesters of law school.’ Our esteemed speakers will guide law students on the most fundamental and unheeded aspects of mooting. The competition would serve as an extracurricular stimulation and would be a catalyst for those students who wish to learn the art of mooting.
