Have you ever thought that the Mooters/Debaters and Academic achievers of your college get too much limelight? Have you ever thought other achievements be it in social service, sports or cultural activities often go unnoticed in our academically oriented law schools?

Well we at NLU Jodhpur believe in bucking the trend and celebrating achievers and achievements even if it is strictly non-academic. In this effort of ours we have tied-up with Legally India to bring to you India's first Law School Sports Fest Live Blog: The Yuvardha III Live Blog.  Every law school has it's share of budding sportsmen and we believe it's time they got their due share of the spotlight.

Keep watching this space as we bring to you live action from the fields and courts of NLU Jodhpur where various law schools across the country will battle it out for sporting supremacy and to emerge as the ultimate champions of Yuvardha III. Watch out as we discover new 'studs' you did not even know existed in your very own law schools.

From Judges to Referees; from Gowns to Jerseys. Time to move on, time to set the ball rolling.- 26th-29th September, 2013 live on Legally India.

25th September, 2013

Today was the penultimate day before the commencement of the fest. Today was the day when the teams started arriving as early as 7 a.m in the morning from distant parts of the country. The mess arc area which is the nerve center of the entire fest saw frantic activity with posters being put up, registrations being concluded and every participant receiving their very own Yuvardha Identity Card on the completion of the formalities. As the teams settled down in their respective hostels so did the Jodhpur sun over the horizon.

If the afternoon was about settling down, the evening was about getting a taste of the competition as the teams hit the courts and the fields at NLUJ to practice for tomorrow and also to familiarize themselves with the competition. If the intensity on display is anything to go by you have 3 days of intense matches ahead to look forward to.

We decided to give the participants some time to unwind before the actual competition begins as the NLUJ Auditorium played host to the Opening Ceremony which included a cultural extravaganza and the official inauguration of the fest followed by a firecracker show.

The day concluded with a demonstration Gully Cricket Match to familiarize the participants with the Event amidst a surprise appearance from the rain gods.

Tomorrow promises to be a cracker as the teams will draw first blood. Stay tuned to this space for live updates.
