KIIT Law School Organizes Lecture on ‘Drafting of Petitions and Pleadings’


Department of Legal Theory and Law Miscellany, KIIT Law School (KLS) organized a guest lecture on ‘Drafting of Petitions and Pleadings’ on 14th of August 2021 for the 4th year students of law. Delivering the talk, Mr. Swarnendu Chatterjee stated that drafting should always be backed by strong research which is considered to be the thumb rule. It is very important to know what the client actually wants. Drafting differs from the court of first instance to the last instance. Mr. Chatterjee highlighted various provisions of civil and procedural law which are important to understand practical matters in the court. He also said that drafting and petitioning are handy to each other. Date and facts are of utmost importance when it comes to drafting. What the client actually wants should be known as a whole. Court of first instance and the court of last instance play a very important role in the drafting. Finally, he spoke about five writs which are considered to be mandatory when it comes to drafting, pleading and conveyancing.
