The session which started on March 14, 2019, will continue till March 15, 2019, at Amity University, Uttar Pradesh, Noida campus. Every year, the session is conducted to give its students hands-on experience of the Indian Parliamentary System. This year’s AMP Motto says Convene. Connect. Champion and over 300 students from across the country have registered themselves to be part of this mock parliament.
Like its previous editions, this year too the law school is focusing on the importance of legislation, policy-making, debating skills, framing laws to name a few. However, this year’s mock parliament session is also looking at discussions on democratic fabric of the country especially in the present scenario when discussions on democracy go hay-wire given the suppression of free speech and expression.
