About the Competition

Opinio Juris 2.0 organised by LedX brings an exciting & innovative opportunity for law students to step into the shoes of a judge and deliver a well-articulated opinion on a landmark judgement. Plurality of Opinions is the necessity of a democracy; a strong democracy will always have strong voices of dissent and concurrence.
The ones who voice their thoughts and opinions thoroughly will find a strong and rational way to be heard by the world. Judicial opinions are crucial in shaping and interpreting the law and promoting fairness, consistency, and transparency in the legal system.
In this competition, the participants will be expected to write dissenting or concurring opinions to an existing landmark judgement. The participants will be expected to write a thorough and diligent appreciation of the factual matrix, precedents, obiter & ratio decidendi of the judgement and provide a dissenting opinion.
